Storyline

Joseph, son of Israel (Jacob) and Rachel, lived in the land of Canaan with eleven brothers and one sister. He was Rachel's firstborn and Israel's eleventh son. Of all the sons, Joseph was loved by his father the most. Israel even arrayed Joseph with a "long coat of many colors".[1] Israel's favoritism toward Joseph caused his half brothers to hate him, and when Joseph was seventeen years old he had two dreams that made his brothers plot his demise. In the first dream, Joseph and his brothers gathered bundles of grain. Then, all of the grain bundles that had been prepared by the brothers gathered around Joseph's bundle and bowed down to it. In the second dream, the sun (father), the moon (mother) and eleven stars (brothers) bowed down to Joseph himself. When he told these two dreams to his brothers, they despised him for the implications that the family would be bowing down to Joseph. They became jealous that their father would even ponder over Joseph's words concerning these dreams. (... Written by Vivian de Oliveira

A wonderful mini series!
14 October 2017 | by flaglady15See all my reviews

This excellent mini series has obsessed me since I discovered it on one of the UK's lesser known channels earlier this year (2017). I recorded all I could of it which was 32 of the 38 episodes and have watched it start to finish almost every month! I love all the character portrayals and found out what I could of the actors which wasn't easy! The series itself is splendorous in every aspect: set dressings, costumes, script, interpretation and characterisations, even the minor characters. But the sound track music – oh my goodness, extraordinary is a mild word to describe it. I think all of it has surpassed any similar productions from Hollywood and our own BBCtv. I particularly loved the way the different acts were divided by drifting views of wondrous landscapes of desert sands and mountains. The principal character, Joseph, played by Angelo Paes Leme and Ricky Taveres, both of Brazil, are faithful interpretations and make your heart ache with what the real Joseph must have gone through. But then, he was the precursor of Jesus so it follows biblically. Family stories, love stories, a history and biblical stories all rolled into one. It's amazing and should have had awards galore! One thing though, I would say that the closing 10 minutes of the last episode are heart wrenching. Very little said, all visual - but that music! I'd seriously love to get a box set of of this (with English dubbing, of course) but I don't suppose that's ever going to be possible. I actually contacted 'My Channel' and they told me they will be running the series again sometime next year. I am SO delighted!
