Description
Now on Blu-Ray, "Quo Vadis" (1951) delivers a vivid portrait of life in the decay and depravity of ancient Rome when Christianity is beginning to spread throughout the empire.  Robert Taylor plays Marcus Vinicius,an influential Roman commander who becomes enthralled with Deborah Kerr, playing Lygia, a new convert to Christianity. Soon after Kerr gives her heartfelt testimony to Marcus, he converts to Christianity. This sparks a serious rift between Marcus and Emperor Nero, played by Peter Ustinov. Nero blames the growing religion for the turmoil within his empire. Nero's response to the newly formed religion is both swift and shocking. The stunning musical score is by Miklos Rozsa.

    Comments about this product:

    I thought that this was an original story about the violent conflict between Roman pagans and early Christians. For the most part, this story is not told from the perspective of well known historical figures. The principal characters, the Roman centurion and his beautiful love interest, were probably fabricated by the storyteller. This somehow makes the story more authentic. Although a significant subplot of the movie involves Peter the disciple, much of the movie focuses on the enormous dedication and courage shown by average, early Christians and their persecution by a militaristic, masochistic, profoundly immoral, and decadent Roman Empire. Finally, the cinematography is absolutely stunning.

        Rank it up there with King of Kings and the Robe as one of my favorite Easter message movies.
