The film, which won a Special Jury Prize at the 1964 Venice Film Festival, is different from other cinematic depictions of the life of Christ in that there is no screenplay per se. Pasolini limited himself to the account by Matthew: only words written by the Saint are employed; no additional dialogue was written and only scenes described by Matthew are shown. Pasolini used no professional actors (his mother plays the older Mary) and he dedicated his film "to the dear familiar memory of John XXIII."

Giuditta (Claudia Cardenale) tries to help the rebels, but all are arrested and sentenced to hang for crimes against the civilian and papal authorities. Britt Eklund plays Princess Spada and Alberto Sordi plays the priest who tries to console the captives in their last hours. The story is taken from actual incidents in Rome just after the turn of the 19th century."--All Movie Guide
The gospel according to St. Matthew by Pier Paolo Pasolini ( Visual )
7 editions published between 1964 and 2002 in Italian and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A life of Christ from the Annunciation to the Resurrection based on the text Pasolini regarded as the most socially critical of the Gospels. Pasolini filmed in the peasnat communities of southern Italy using non-professionals. He uses the neo-realist style in taking Christianity back to its popular roots. He sets up a tension between the essence of the Gospel messgage and all the history that has been piled on that message. This is suggested by the allusions to mediaeval and Renaissance painting in many of the compositions and the use of music from Bach to negro spirituals. DVD
