The first Passion Play films made by Pathé Frères filmed in a studio in Vincennes. Jesus is here played by Gaston Brettau, just like in the Lumiere film and the film is also directed by George Hatot as he went on to make the Passion movie for Pathé after finishing his two previous films(for Lumiere and for Gaumont). The series of films had 16 tableaux but was also sold in a series of 9. The total length was 335m.
This new Passion, which we present to our clients, is recommended by the historical truth, the local color, the richness of the costumes and the decorations, which have been applied in an absolute way. We are sure that these qualities will make her well received by all amateurs who seek art and truth in the films they procure. By acquiring this Passion, they will be certain to have in their possession a series unique in the world, and we can confirm to them, in advance and without any exaggeration, the most brilliant success. The Passion is sold in two series, one of 9 paintings and the other of 16. The subjects are the same for the two series, that is to say they are printed on the same negatives. These two series are made in Edison perforation or Lumière perforation.
