I never liked this endlessly boring epic. Many times I tried to sit through this long work of Mr. Kawalerowicz, and was always deeply disappointed. This excellent film director shines in his recent master work Quo Vadis? but here in his early attempt he mostly drowned us in deadly slow and painfully dull description of the Ramses XIII's struggle against the church clergy. It seems that the film was attempted to be a grand picture, but even the battle scene and the episode of the old pharaoh's embalmed are so slow, so melancholic as if the whole film crew got sun burnt in the Egyptian sands. Other hilarious moments include the impossibly funny wigs that divert all the attention from the play, the poor performance of the main hero and the ruthlessly long dialogs between the clergy members. If you want a film that will make you feel sleepy, go for it!
