“It’s a slightly spicy film. It shows how stupid men are. This is about the movie – women are the stronger, more gathered characters. I had to adjust it a little, but now I like it a lot. It’s an exploration of Jesus after he gets out of jail. It’s a comedy, but a very human one, “Turturro said.

He also said he made this film with all the support of Joel and Ethan Coen. “They’re my friends, close friends, and they supported me when I said I wanted to explore this character more. They said, “You have to do it because we do not.” If I have something to show, I show them if I’m around. ”
