Ralph Fiennes' Voice as JESUS is the Ultimate

Have you seen THE STAR yet? I cannot wait. Love the soundtrack already thanks to Apple Music. Until I get a chance to see the film in cinema, I decided to watch/listen to the 2000 Russian made stop-motion film Miracle Maker starring Ralph Fiennes as Jesus.
If you haven't already seen the movie, I highly recommend it! Perhaps stop motion is not your cup of tea (nor is it mine) but the voice portrayal of Ralph Fiennes as JESUS is exceptional, one of my all time favorite portrayals.
Miracle Maker. (c) Miracle Maker.
Fiennes' portrays Jesus as a humane man with great emotion -- including passion when he cries over John the Baptist, overturns tables at the Temple; a natural speaking voice riddled with humor when he speaks to the crowds and his disciples; and even a sigh (!) when the Pharisees begin to ask him another question. <Loved it.> I could go on and on. Ralph Fiennes might be better known for Schindler's List and Harry Potter but he was a perfectly casted Jesus (as an adult).

All that to say, I cannot wait to see THE STAR in cinemas (out today!!) and if you have Amazon Prime do yourself a favor and watch/listen to Ralph Fiennes' Miracle Maker.

Some THE STAR Trivia:
- Christopher Plummer (Herod) played Herod's son and heir in Jesus of Nazareth.
