Manoel de Oliveira had as an assistant director in the film the poet and director António Reis, whose influence can be felt deeply throughout it, what lead to its inclusion in The School of Reis program.
The inhabitants of Curalha, a small village in western Portugal, perform the Passion of Jesus every year according to text from about the 16th century, Oliveira stumbled upon this during the production of a film in 1963; the film is also remembered for "a furious apocalyptic montage that links Christ's death to the violence and lunacy of the Vietnam era".
