The Passion of the Christ is one of the most controversial movies in the history of cinema. The sequence in the movie is covering the last 12 hours of Jesus Christ’s life among people. The movie was shot entirely in reconstructed Latin and Aramaic language and it was played with vernacular subtitles. The 2004 movie was directed by Mel Gibson and after its release many slated it for portraying the image of Jesus in a somewhat negative way.
During the filming of the movie some supernatural occurrences hit the crew members and cast. The lead actor playing Jesus Christ, Jim Caviezel, got struck by a lighting which also hit the assistant director Jan Michelini. The accident happened while they were filming in a distant location situated a couple of hours away from the center of Rome. Luckily, no one was badly injured.
To make the event even more odd, it was the second time Michelini got struck by a lighting. The first accident happened in Matera, Italy but only left the director with some minor burns on his fingers after his umbrella got hit by the lighting.
