The Journey of the Magi
Italian master Ermanno Olmi (The Tree of Wooden Clogs) recreates the Journey of the Magi in this unique interpretation of one of the Bible's most beloved tales. And, though the story is familiar, Olmi's telling of it is inspired and fresh.
When one of the Magi sees a comet streak across the sky, he interprets the heavenly body as a divine message. He embarks on a journey in the direction of the "star," accompanied by a caravan of assistants, soldiers, merchants, and villagers. After two other Magi join the caravan, the journey unfolds as a test of faith and strength for its participants.
