This is a fine production of events that are preserved in ancient documents, letters and hieroglyphs from Ancient Egypt..The sets and costumes are well done and the acting representing these events is quite superb..I am familiar with Ancient Egypt and the representation was as good as you can get with digital enhancement that a novice would appreciate..I recommend this video to anyone with some interest in that period and it was enlightening in it's portrayal of everyday human events from thousands of years ago..The effort made in this video to bring back the events of this period was on a high scale and I sincerely wish that any other portrayal of Ancient Egypt will use this video as a guideline for future quality productions..
