Interesting take on the movie. There's bound to be a few ways of interpreting it when it is as non-explicit about it's meanings as it is. The struggle of Jesus to be what he has to be is definitely a central theme.

I kept thinking about his accent through the whole scene, so that would be a 'yes'

It was only a handful scenes where it struck me as an odd fit. Most of the movie, it did work.

Terrible movie that is so overated based on the fact that it's "foreign cinema".

It kind of depends on what you're looking for. For your traditional Hollywood God-is-great sort of thing, you can't go wrong with either King of Kings or The Greatest Story Ever Told, both excellent movies. Naturally, if you're particularly interested and haven't yet seen it, the Franco Zeffireli mini-series Jesus of Nazareth is a must-see, though it's very long (5 or 6 hours, split into four episodes) and of course the musical Jesus Christ Superstar is great too, with an interesting take on Judas. If you want a laugh, and have not yet seen it, Monty Python's Life of Brian is a hilariously irreverent take on the whole story. There was also a miniseries called I think just The Bible a while back, which was very good too.

I think we need an explanation Chula, that's a bold statement.

He didn't catch the subtext. Common mistake.

Subtext, smugtext. It's simply just a bad movie. Horrible acting, terrible special FX, and really stupid storyline.

Agent yellow? Really?

What is foreign cinema when there's people in every different country

On account of you missing everything that it's about. It's like a 70s arena rock experience.
