Historically speaking, passion plays recount the Easter story of Jesus Christ’s sufferings leading up to his crucifixion: the trial, his suffering and ultimately his death. They’re a means of remembering this central component of the Christian faith, a way to participate in his sacrifice for humanity. With all that said, I’m really not sure how that traditional approach to the concept of the passion play connects with this film, aside from the fact that you might feel like you’re suffering as you watch it.
