On the occasion of the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther's birth in 1483, a group of excellent stage and screen thespians joined to act out a street performance of the religious reformer's attitudes and views, divided according to the many hats he wore: monk, reformer, fugitive, politico, and also prophet. As an added twist at the end, the actors -- still in costume -- both review and debate the very aspects of Luther's philosophy dramatized for the audience. Although the acting and dialogue are well-executed, the camerawork is hampered by a low vantage point and uncoordinated takes that may or may not focus on the most important moments on the stage.
