the other side of the story as told by the notorious wife...
25 March 2012 | by (Fairfax, VA) – See all my reviews

"Slave of Dreams" is a marvelous evocation of ancient Egyptian life and a fascinating retelling of the story of the Biblical Joseph's psychic gift of interpreting dreams. What makes this different from other depictions is that it tells another side of the story from the viewpoint of the notorious wife of Potiphar (Phtah-keferu-Ra), Pharaoh's high executioner (Edward James Olmos) Zuleika's (Sherilynn Fenn) makes her a much more sympathetic character, as it also does justice to her wronged husband and the tribulations of Joseph (Adrian Pasdar) during his rise to power. The actors and settings are all uniformly convincing, with Emmanuele Cuarucci-Viterbi as falsely convicted prisoner who receives Pharaoh's clemency foretold by fellow prisoner Joseph a standout. It is details like these and a plausible, convincing script that make this film well worth viewing.
