If Passion is supposed to make up for Bird on a Wire, Gibson would have had to flog Caviezel a LOT more. I think the Gospel story *is* about redemption . . . I just don’t think Gibson came close to catching that. (I think he came a lot closer in Braveheart . . . but I might be thinking of Rob Roy). Did you see the French version of Les Miserables done in 1995 by Claude Lelouch? (I rented it from either the Mobile or Cu&#;a8217bs little video store). It has one of the best betrayal scenes on film.
