    The Inquiry - The Revival of the Roman Christian Epic?

    Yep, once again, I'm indebted to Peter Chattaway for highlighting a new bible related film. This time it's The Inquiry due to premiere at Capri Hollywood Film Festival in Italy, a couple of days after Christmas.

    The Enquiry will star Hristo Shopov, Max von Sydow, F. Murray Abraham, Dolph Lundgren, Ben Kingsley and Franco Nero. Story wise it seems to pick up the mantle of the Roman-Christian Epics such as The Robe, Quo Vadis, Barabbas and Ben Hur - a sub-genre that really has been quiet since the sixties. It will be interesting to see if there are any reviews of this film after Christmas.
