Critic Reviews for Jésus de Montréal (Jesus of Montreal)
It's an original and uncompromising attempt to explore what really might happen, if the spirit of Jesus were to walk among us in these timid and materialistic times.
Denys Arcand made this original movie, in which life imitates art, at the peak of his career, right after Decline of the American Empire.
Bluteau has taken his Daniel too seriously, Daniel has taken his Jesus too seriously, and Arcand’s resolute detachment brings the whole conception down.
Audience Reviews for Jésus de Montréal (Jesus of Montreal)
My very first of a lot of things. My first indie. My first foray into Quebecois film. My first look at a Denys Arcand film..and the first time seeing the multitalented Robert Lepage. There is not surprise that many of the alumni of this production went on to succesful careers. It is a great film.
Underrated film. Great allegory.
The movie has some good points: that consumerism, materialism, are hedonism are empty lifestyles. Pop culture... (wealth, sex, the media) is worshipped like a god. The major problem with this movie is the portrayal of Christ. He is the Son of God... the Savior of the world. He was portrayed in this movie as just another man.

|Daniel Coloumbe:||Life's hard to bear, huh? People aren't happy. That's why. It's the reason. The great events, even theatre, all in search of happiness. The source of life is hidden. I was forsaken by my father.|
|Mireille:||We're here. You're not alone.|
|Daniel Coloumbe:||All these buildings, these great structures, not a stone will be left some day.|
