I'm actually on holiday in Morocco at the moment, but one of the things I like to do before I go away is set a few posts up in advance just to keep the blog ticking over.
Anyway, one of the things I'm hoping to do out here is visit some of the places that various Bible films were shot. Unfortunately we're a long, way away from the home of Atlas Studios in Ouarzazate where a whole host of Bible films have been made. It would, perhaps, be a different matter if we weren't only going for a week, and if we didn't have my 15 month daughter with us, but it's just not feasible.
Anyway, according to the IMDb there have been at least 4 epics / Bible films made near where we will be staying: Last Temptation of Christ (1988), Sodom and Gomorrah (1962), I Giardini dell'Eden (1998) and Alexander (2004). I've only seen Last Temptation and Alexander, and even then I've only watched the latter once, but hopefully the location for Last Temptation will be recognisable, and hopefully our host will know of others that the IMDb does not.
