Zeffirelli: Mel Gibsons' Movie Will Flop
Legendary director FRANCO ZEFFIRELLI has attacked MEL GIBSON's upcoming biblical movie THE PASSION.
Zeffirelli, who was responsible for the seminal mini-series JESUS OF NAZARETH, is convinced the movie will flop because it's being filmed only in the ancient languages of Latin and Aramaic - without subtitles.
He says, "I think it is very unlikely it will be a success. Aramaic is such a difficult language. The only way it is if it's a cinematic spectacular."22/05/2003 13:59
