Not being an expert, I cannot vouch for the authenticity of the scenes
of Ancient Egypt, but this recreation of a real crime recorded on
papyrus (miraculously preserved for thousands of years) is certainly
good to look at and well-narrated. Even better is the story which, if
it were fiction, one might dismiss as being fanciful.The cast play
their part too, helping to bring the whole thing to life (or back to
life) so that one really feels for the twins and their plight. Most big
budget Hollywood movies do not even come close to providing this much
entertainment - I was glued to the screen from start to finish, and it
is hard to see how anyone cannot be moved by this very human story of
betrayal, greed, love and hatred amidst a flawed judicial system, and
with a good Samaritan thrown in for good measure. Highly recommended,
even for those with absolutely no interest in history.
