A retelling of the Bible story. Pharaoh Ramses II decrees the death of all Hebrew children, but Moses, placed in a basket in the Nile by his mother, is taken by a royal Princess and raised as the brother of the heir to the throne of Egypt, Mermefta. Moses is called by God to lead his people from Egypt to the promised land. A very reluctant prophet, feeling unworthy of the call, Moses accepts the task. After a series of plagues, Mermefta agrees to let the Hebrews go. With second thoughts, he pursues them to annihilation of his army in the parting of the Red Sea. Starvation is averted by manna from heaven, the ten commandments are given the people through Moses, they go astray with worship of the golden calf. Forty years of wandering in the wilderness, until finally they reach what will be their home (which Moses lives to see, but not to enter).Written by

only a man
an useful film. for discover Moses as simple man in extraordinaries situations. his humanity, his fear, his faith not as expression of power but as axis of mission. Ben Kingsley is not the hero or the special leader. his Moses is only a man. man of a high duty and the photography, costumes, precise measure of dialogs and scenes are inspired tools for discover , in different version, a well known story. a surprising form of poetry gives force to the film. a wise manner to suggest transforms the work of Kingsley and Suchet in a kind of embroidery. a film who not propose a myth. or a statue. but a simple man and his hard fight against himself, the sacrifice for his people. the result is admirable.
