Not being an expert, I cannot vouch for the authenticity of the scenes of Ancient Egypt, but this recreation of a real crime recorded on papyrus (miraculously preserved for thousands of years) is certainly good to look at and well-narrated. Even better is the story which, if it were fiction, one might dismiss as being fanciful.The cast play their part too, helping to bring the whole thing to life (or back to life) so that one really feels for the twins and their plight. Most big budget Hollywood movies do not even come close to providing this much entertainment - I was glued to the screen from start to finish, and it is hard to see how anyone cannot be moved by this very human story of betrayal, greed, love and hatred amidst a flawed judicial system, and with a good Samaritan thrown in for good measure. Highly recommended, even for those with absolutely no interest in history.
