A Montreal shrine seeks to inspire its congregants by modernizing its staging of the Passion play. A promising cast of vibrant young actors are signed on-- one fresh from perfume commercials, another from the pornographic film industry, and another who had an affair with the basilica's priest-- quickly drive the production on to become a smash hit. But as the play enjoys the success, the actors become more and more challenged to separate their real lives from their lives onstage--Container.

Jesus of Montreal is a deceptively simple premise: an out of work actor is hired to resuscitate an annual Passion play in a Monteral church. What happens from there is far from ordinary. It asks the question Is art Imitating life, or is life imitating art?As the players deepen their roles,unexpected turn occur.So often movies with religious themes are schlock,treacly spouting pious slogans that are void of life. Jesus of Monmtreal avoids all of these pitfalls,and does so brilliantly.Lothar Bleauteu {also wonderful in Black Robe} hits every note perfectly in playing the lead.
