Storyline

Each of the four separate episodes -rather independent chapters- presents some of the findings of Egyptology, largely in the form of realistically presented docudrama, a splendid spectacle by peplum-standards, yet unusually true and hence surprising for non-specialist viewers in various details. Remarkable is the revealed contrast between the image-building clichés presented by the official, mostly monumental sources, glorifying deified pharaohs' glorious reign and triumphs and 'celestial' deities, and the more mundane reality, deduced largely from other archaeological findings, showing more human vices, misery, crime...

EXCELLENT dramatization
2 May 2004 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

4 top-notch 50-minute drama-documentaries about episodes in ancient Egypt with "authentic" Egyptians playing all roles and breathtaking scenery.

Especially the episodes "The Battle of Megiddo" and "Tomb Robbers" are extremely well played and immensely interesting. The episodes are all made almost as short feature films but and apart from being exciting are full of interesting information on everyday life in ancient Egypt.

Note Muhamed Soufi's, (Bakwerel, the corrupt chief of police in the episode "Tomb Robbers") priceless mimic and evil stares at his opponents.........

NOT to be missed - 9 stars out of 10 !!!
