In contrast to a big budgeted "Ben Hur A Tale of the
Christ" or "The Passion of the Christ," "Son of
Man" features simple heartfelt theology, a myth of
Jesus set in modern South Africa with English
subtitles. Not that one would need reading too much,
"Son of Man" is good old fashioned visual cinema.
Those expecting an Alfred Newman "Song of
Bernadette" soundtrack will be disappointed, but the
folk music from South Africa is inspiring.
"Son of Man" is a special entry for Christians who do not attend Film Festivals.
