NR 1 hr 22 minFeb 12th, 1984Music, Drama
Sebastian Chief Archer in the Roman Army converts to Christianity A favorite of Emperor Augustus Sebastians devotion to Christ eventually drives him to reject the Emperors love causing the Emperor to angrily order Sebastian to be shot with arrows by his fellow archers The film retells this mystery play with a definite arthouse approach an almost poetical use of language singing dancing some homoerotic themes and some special effects
