Lucien Nonguet, Ferdinand Zecca | Early Cinema , Biography , Drama

Life and Passion of the Christ is one of the earliest feature-length narrative films. The film, with sequences made in the stencil color process Pathéchrome, takes a straightforward approach to its subject matter. All scenes are introduced by an inter-title giving the traditional name of the event (the Annunciation, the Nativity, etc.) followed by the actors playing out the familiar stories from the Gospels. Other than the scene titles, there are no other inter-titles.

Cast: Madame Moreau, Monsieur Moreau.
