I have loved Zeferelli's Shakespearean movies, but I thought his Passion was very silly. His Jesus had psychedelic blue eyes and a spooky demeanor, and his Mary kept reminding me of Juliet. "Behold, the handmaiden of the Lord. But that's the nightingale, not the lark..."

LOL! I have to say though that Zeferelli's version was slightly more watchable (although creepy) than the 'Jesus' mini-series a few years ago staring 'Elton' from the movie "Clueless" as Jesus. Now THAT was disturbing! :o
