Storyline

The biblical tale of Joseph is told from an Egyptian perspective in this interesting character study. In this film, Joseph is called Ram. Ram, tired of his family's backward superstitious life, and tired of being picked on by his brothers, wants to go to Egypt to study agriculture. His brothers travel with him across Sinai, but then suddenly sell him to Ozir, an Egyptian who works for a Theban military leader, Amihar. Amihar is impressed by Ram's drive and personal charm and so grants Ram some desolate land outside the capital. Ram soon finds himself a pawn in the political and sexual games between Amihar and his wife Simihit, a high priestess of the Cult of Amun. Written by Sandra Brennan

Story of a man rejected by his family and the complicated journey of his love and life.
28 December 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Excellent movie. Youssef Chahine presented once more an avant-gardist Arabic piece of art. He presents again a movie that dares to talk about the main taboos in the Arabc world. Maybe one ought to come from an Arabic background and culture to truly appreciate the avant-gardism but it is still a good movie on several levels: The scenery is amazing. The acting is great. For example, Khaled El Nabaoui was a new actor back then and he truly proved himself through this movie. Yusra as usual is a great actor. Ahmad Bedir who seems to be one of Chahine's most preferred actors (he appeared in several of his movie) was astonishing. I think that the rating of the movie on IMDb underestimates its artistic value.
