I don't know from anti-Semitism, but I only started to get interested in
the movie when I heard it was going to be all in Aramaic and classical
Latin. I may not actually know what those languages are supposed to
sound like, but certainly different than languages I usually hear on the
street! And, no offense to Bill Shatner, it's got to be more
interesting than a movie in Esperanto!!
