Rent Messiah on DVD


1999 Rated NR 1hr 57m

William Klein's experimental film blends modern themes and images with the complete score of Handel's "Messiah," presenting a visually provocative adaptation of the epic oratorio. Stirring images convey the complexities of modern life and the darkest depths of human nature, while Handel's narrative of resurrection and salvation promises redemption. Mezzo-soprano Magdalena Kozena and countertenor Brian Asawa star, with Marc Minkowski conducting.
