One of the best historical movies about the old Egypt.
11 February 2000 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

This movie is about the fight between a Pharaoh (Ramses XIII) and the spiritual power. Almost all the historical details were revised by egyptologist. Show the little power of the Pharaohs in the New Empire.
