So much crying! It's the same thing it's happening with daesh now. Every fanatism is the same, ignorant and violent. History repeats.
The movie is really well done, vfx, actors, direction.... just perfect and moving!

Great cinematography, terrific acting and moving story. It is very relatable to today's bigotry to the changes. Though the movie kinda depict Christians in bad terms (with them seem to be the most fundamentalist and destructive), it also shows that even the most "intellectual" ones, the pagans, are not sinless from the guilt of bigotry (shown early in the movie). Under the pretext of "absolute truth", whether it's god or science, anyone can be a bigot, similar to today's debate of the pious vs the godless.
