While Boleslaw Prus, the author of "Pharaoh", wrote only a few novels, he is considered one of the best novelists of his times. Fellow writer Joseph Conrad was a fan of his work and considered him a better writer than Charles Dickens. See more »
a subtle, bitter, cruel, cold story about the power. admirable adaptation of one of the important Polish novels of XIX century. and support of reflection about force of decisions and the value of good intentions. short, a great fascinating work. who impress not only for acting or costumes, fights and tension but for the realistic rebuild of an Egypt who becomes more than historical lesson. its grace, its terrible force of image and dialog, the new sense of a language who is perfect cloth for the story are virtues of a film who remains, almost half century, fascinating. and useful for understand history as a strange vehicle.
