When Esther is in the courtyard of the harem eating she throws food to a monkey. When the camera shows Esther tossing the food it is obviously a thin sliver of meat, however when it cuts to the monkey picking up food it is a banana, or some soft white/yellow fruit. These shots are shown twice. See more »
Why would they buy belladonna from you?
Jewish apothecary merchant:
May they seek poison someone. Very deadly. Very quick.
You sold them poison? A Jew sells poison to the king's fruit tasters?
[grabbing the merchants face and shaking him]
Have you any idea for whom it might have been intended?

I enjoyed watching this movie but they took a lot of license with the biblical story. They especially changed time frames where they made months into weeks and days into hours. If you know your bible, you can really spot the differences.
I thought Tiffany Dupont who played Esther was charming. Luke Goss who played Xerxes was a bit overblown. The guy (James Callas) who played Haman was way over the top. John Rhys-Davies is always a joy to watch and he doesn't disappoint as Mordecai.
Even with that, I would rather see a movie like this than 90% of the stuff put in theaters these days. Would recommend seeing the movie and then go home and read the real story!
