Joseph's story on film
30 October 1998 | by (Malta) – See all my reviews

Surely not the best biblical story put on film, however this American-Italian production is quite good. Definitely better that any film of the same genre that came out of Italy in that decade. Even though leading man Borromel is quite stiff and severe looking, still other performances, namely from Belinda Lee, cover this drawback. Much of the story is as it is found in the Bible, but a little space for love and originality is given. I remember watching this movie on an Italian channel some days before a rival channel broadcasted the latest adaptation of this story, called "Joseph". Though it is by far inferior to the Emmy award winner, still it is enjoyable.
