‘Savior’ ~ CFDb Movie Review
A contemporary interpretation of the Christmas story.
What would it look like if Jesus were born in the 21st Century? Savior is a contemporary interpretation of the Christmas story set in modern England. Mary and Joe are working class twenty-somethings planning their wedding and trying to make ends meet.
Everything changes when a supernatural visitor announces to Mary that she will bear the Savior of the world! This reverent contemporary treatment of the Christmas story gives a fresh perspective on the reality of Jesus’ coming.
You will be laughing one minute and moved to tears the next as you watch this story translated into present-day culture. The film was written, directed, and produced by Freedom Church, Hereford, England. The actors are all from the church, and the original soundtrack was also written and produced by church members.
Besides the great cinematography and musical score, a very unique beginning and interesting spin. Here were a few highlights:
- To change the world you need to be willing to be used by God.
- God uses common people.
- His fire melts our frost.
Great ending as well. An all around interesting film
