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.

THE EDITED VERSION LACKS, SERIOUSLY
26 August 2002 | by leevmlafn1See all my reviews

This 2 hour version cuts out a lot of the interplay and character development of the mini-series that helps move the story along, and gives credence to the whole thing. If you can see the mini-series, do so.

The best thing about both the short and mini-series versions is the score by Ennio Morricone. He has composed one cue that I, personally, believe is the finest single cue he has ever written, and that is saying a lot, what with OVER 400 scores to his name. And Morricone, himself, called this one of his most difficult works at the time, having to compose, thru modern means, a score that depicts an ancient time and place. The score is magnificent, heart-wrenching, and haunting.
