Storyline

Egypt is and ever was a place of mystery. Many rumors spread around the great Pyramids of Gizeh (the only one of the seven wonders of the world left), their age ranges - in different theories - between 3,000 and even 12,000 years. Here, an old Egyptian is asked by his granddaughter about those mysteries of which we all heard in one way or the other. The action takes us to Howard Carter, who, after years and years of searching, finally found King Tutankhamen's (Tut-ench-Amun) grave in 1922. This was a major event in archaeology, as this grave was never robbed and therefore in the same condition as it was left (est.) 1339 B.C. We also get to see the Nile's wells and other historic landmarks that make Egypt an important part of world history. Written by Julian Reischl <julianreischl@mac.com>

a guided tour of the pyramids
17 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Omar Sharif takes his teenage niece on a tour of the Giza pyramids, introducing her to the world of the pharaohs. By itself the film is not much more than a grade school primer on the glories of an ancient civilization, with a script strictly vetted by the Cairo Chamber of Commerce. But it's hard not to be impressed by any image enlarged to IMAX proportions, and most of the impact here can be found in the exhilarating aerial shots over the cataracts of the Upper Nile, and in the clarity (and sheer volume) of the soundtrack. The National Geographic banner is enough to ensure a promise of quality, and let's face it: a forty minute tour of King Tut's tomb is certainly better than a two hour brain vacation in the multiplex next door.
