Wonderful modern version of the bible story of Joseph, the lost son
26 December 2000 | by (Zwijndrecht, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This is a wonderful modern version of the bible story of Joseph, the lost son. The symbolic meaning of the bible story is well kept. It's a fantastic bible story that shows the power of forgiving. This movie is intelligently played with strong acting and with a good director feeling for atmosphere. I love this movie in its own.
