Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: This IMAX spectacular largely does what it's supposed to: fascinate, educate, and visually wow the audience, in 45 minutes or less. – Ethan Gilsdorf, Boston Globe, Sep 19, 2013

Fresh: The film is at its most moving, paradoxically, when the camera gets down to street level, seeming to squeeze, for example, into a small shop in the walled Old City, where two men play backgammon amid claustrophobically over-hung racks of trinkets. – Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post, Nov 22, 2013

Fresh: You can all but feel the heat of blazing candles in the Orthodox pre-Easter ritual of the Holy Fire in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the most impressive scene in a dazzling film. – Linda Barnard, Toronto Star, Mar 6, 2014

Fresh: Laudable for turning armchair tourism into a breathtaking experience - a viewer can truly feel as if he or she has gone inside a number of fantastic, ancient places. – Tom Keogh, Seattle Times, Sep 26, 2013

Spectacular and unmissable

I have never seen such incredible images of the city and holy land. The director does not take sides and shows us a picture of the city and what it means for the three faiths that call it home. This is simply breathtaking and extraordinary and a must see for anyone interested in Jerusalem.

"Can't we all just get along?"

This film was released through National Geographic which means it adheres to two basic standards: beautiful cinematography and political correctness.

The documentary begins and repeats the assertion that Jerusalem was founded by the Jebusites and used the city to worship the god of the setting sun. It then proceeds to show us city life from the perspective of three teenage-ish+ girls, one representing Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The over arching theme is that all three religions live in their own city sectors and live gentle lives of worship and would get along fine if they would take the time to know each other (and, of course, realize that it was the Jebusites who originally worshipped in Jerusalem anyway). What the documentary particularly fails to note during its observation of each group praying is that two of the groups pray for peace, and one prays for the destruction of the other two groups. The file attempts to make the case for moral and religious equivalence as the foundation for harmonious co-existence.

Pretty pictures though.
