Location Production Footage: The Last Temptation of Christ


[ Birds Squawking ]

[ Man ]

The feeling begins.

Very tender, very loving.

Then the pain starts.

Claws slip underneath the skin

and tear their way up.

Just before they reach my eyes,

they dig in.

Then I remember.

[ Pounding ]

First, I fasted

for three months.

I even whipped myself

before I went to sleep.

At first it worked.

Then the pain came back.

And the voices.

They call me by name,


[ Sighs ]

[ Jesus ]

Who is it? Who are you?

Why are you following me?

Are you ready?

No, no. No more crosses.

We're ready.

Do you hear? Where's your mind?

Do you hear what I'm saying?

The Messiah

won't come that way.

What do you mean by that?

Who told you?

[ Spits ]

You're a disgrace!

The Romans can't find anybody

to make crosses except for you!

You do it!

You're worse than them!

You're a Jew killing Jews!

You're a coward!

How will you ever pay

for your sins?

With my life, Judas.

I don't have anything else.

Don't turn away.

Look at me. Look at me.

With your life?

What do you mean?

Please, Judas.

I don't know. I don't know.

- Are you still taking the cross?

- Yes, I am.

No, you're not.

[ Mutters ]

[ Groaning ]

I won't let you!

No! I won't let you!

Please, I beg you,

don't get in the way.

What way?

What's happened to you?

I'm struggling.

- With who?

- I don't know. I'm struggling.

No. No.

I struggle.

You collaborate.

[ Shouting, Grunting ]

[ Scream, Groaning ]

[ Groans ]

[ Grunting ]

[ Neck Snaps ]

[ Panting ]

[ Quiet Chattering ]

[ Chattering Continues ]

[ Indistinct Shouting ]

[ Man ]

Leave him alone. Are you ready?

[ Man ]

Stop him! Stop him!

[ Taunting, Shouting Continues ]

[ Man ]


You are the people of Israel.

Your children are watching.

You are the people of God. He is

judging us. He's watching you. Please.

- There he is.

- Kill him.

Don't touch him!

Get away from him!

- Don't defend him.

- He's my son!

[ Shouting Continues ]

God is with us.

He's judging us.

Fight! Fight!

[ Man ]

God help us!

God give us strength!

Give us strength now!

[ Quiet Chattering ]

[ Children Giggling ]

[ Prisoner Muttering ]

You are His children.

You are His children.

[ Dog Howling ]

Come. Come with me.

[ Centurion ]

This man naked before you now

is condemned for sedition...

for lifting his hand against Rome.

He rallied the people to revolution.

He promised that a Messiah would come

from among the people...

to rise up and destroy Rome.

- Rome is nothing.

- Murder.

- It's small.

- Betrayal, looting, and so on.

And so, therefore,

he is condemned to die.

Rome condemns him.

And all the gods

of Rome condemn him.

[ Woman Wailing ]

The shield is--

He is our heart.

He is our heart.

He is our heart.

He is our--

He is our shield.

- Lazarus.

- He is our shield.

He is our shield.

He will not abandon us.

He will not abandon you.

He will not abandon you.

He will not abandon you.

He will not abandon you.

[ Hammering, Lazarus Screaming ]

- [ Gasps ]

- [ Screaming Continues ]

[ Gasps ]

[ Man Chanting ]

Mercy on him. Mercy on him.

[ Woman Wailing ]

[ Lazarus Screaming, Groaning ]

[ Groaning ]

Ahhh! No!

- [ Screaming ]

- No.

[ Jesus ]

God loves me. I know He loves me.

I want him to stop.

I can't take the pain.

The voices and the pain.

- [ Groaning Continues ]

- I want Him to hate me.

I fight Him and make crosses

so He'll hate me.

I want Him to find somebody else.

I want to crucify

every one of his Messiahs.

You're sure it's God?

You're sure it's not the devil?

I'm not sure.

I'm not sure of anything.

If it's the devil,
