Quotes

Aaron: [immediately after forging the golden calf at Mount Herob] ... Children of Israel, this which you see here... this is not God. The very idea is absurd! But it will *remind* you of God, each and every day that you pass by it.

not very large, not clear, almost a drawing. but impressive. I do not know if it is a great film. part of end of a period when Ben Hur spirit was master of Hollywood, it is difficult to define it more than part of a chain. but Burt Lancaster does an impeccable role. and for me, this film, like others, was a lesson of religion. under Communism regime, in Romania of 1984, when the churches are victims of strange architectural plans, when the faith was a form of resistance against the regime, Moses, this Moses, maybe fake, maybe theatrical, was a window. and , after years, not the film is important but crumbs of its memories. a great actor creates an unique character. and this character is perfect revolutionary. fragile, weak, strong, powerful, old and solitary. a master and a victim. the nuances of this base of the religions of Word are the gift of Lancaster. and his work is admirable.
