Based on the book by the famous writer Anne Rice - “Christ: The Lord from Egypt”, a new film “Young Messiah” was released, telling about the childhood years of Jesus Christ.
In the film, the 7-year-old boy Jesus, who still does not know who he is, does not suspect his divine origin. Mary and Joseph carefully tear down from his son the story of his birth. They want to protect him from those who want to harm him. “How can we see God in our own son?” Joseph and Mary ask themselves. Arriving in ignorance, Jesus begins to work miracles, he does it quite by accident. The boy does not understand what is happening to him. The situation is aggravated by the regular meetings of the boy Jesus with Satan. In the role of Satan, Rory Keenan, a very colorful character, is quite extravagant in appearance. Jesus begins to heal disease, revives a dead friend, in every way shows his supernatural abilities. People start to consider him the Devil.
The main part of the film “The Young Messiah” is dedicated to the long journey of the young Christ to Nazareth. He wants to know about his mission, who he really is and to know his mission. A special role was taken by Maria, her experiences for the fate of her own son, make the viewer think about a lot.
