Format: DVD
While some biblical epics spawn debate over the dramatic licence taken by Hollywood as opposed to remaining faithful to the source material, this series rightly deserved it's Emmy for remaining faithful to the Bible and thereby creating a dramatic, engaging epic with a stunning cast. Who would argue with the quality of Ben Kingsley, or TV's Warren Clarke among the other fine actors on display here. Yet for all the brilliant costumes, sets, direction and acting, it is the faithful, word-for-word adaptation that is at the foundation of this production, and the reason why I'm looking forward to seeing the others in this series! I recommend it to people familiar with the story, or people who enjoy well-made, fascinating, intelligent epics!

What an excellent movie! It remains faithful to the Bible story and is superbly acted. Paul Mercurio as Joseph adds depth to a difficult role and Ben Kingsley is amazing. Loved it!

This is an amazing movie. It keeps almost word for word with scripture and dose not add or take away for the original story like most other bible epics do. It is both inspiring and educational.

I must admit I do love a good biblical epic, my personal favorite being 1959's "Ben-Hur"

In Hollywood's golden age though many biblical stories were romantised thereby losing a lot of credibilty when it came to the accuracy of the story. That's why I probably like "Ben-Hur" as although it has a biblical setting the story itself is fictional. That is why I'm often disappointed with the bible stories on screen.

I must say however that with "Joseph" there was no disappointment whatsoever. It has it all. Accurate storytelling, emotion, adventure.The cast is superb and when Joseph reveals himself to his brothers I dare you not to get dewy eyed.

I particularly liked the research that went into the script like the fact that when Joseph was Governor of Egypt he was known as Zaphanathpenea.

Brilliant.

Buy it now - it's a steal at that price.

Not many Biblical adaptations do what this wonderful masterpiece does. Keeping the viewer gripped, while treating the whole story with sensitivity. Special mention must go to Paul Mercurio (stricly ballroom) who shines in the title role. Of course, everybody knows the Biblical tale of joseph. A young man equally blessed and cursed. loved by his father Jacob dearly, the jealousy of his twelve brothers is soon aroused. Eventually the brothers sell Joseph into egyptian slavery. Many years later, and the pharoah is having some bad dreams. Come in joseph. The king is so happy that he installs Joseph as his second in command to oversee plans to ride out the famine God had warned about in Phroah's dreams. Of course, the message is, that no matter what bad things happen to you, god can make good result from it. Wonderfully and lavishly produced,it's a must see whether you beleive in the Bible or not. Special mention must also go to Ben kinglsley, Remarkable in his role as Potiphar.

Format: DVD
This is a brilliant epic movie, a tour de force, the best Biblical movie I have seen with the exception of One Night with the King Starring Paul Mercurio in the title role, he gives an intelligent and passionate performance of a man who was prepared to die, to keep to the word of his G-D.
Ben Kingsley is his usual magnificent self in his role of Potiphar which he plays with panache. Warren Clark played a sterling role as Potiphar's thuggish overseer Domo Ednan, later to be Joseph's aid de camp. A deliciously evil Potiphar's Wife is captured in brilliant detail by Lesley Ann Warren and the actors playing the ten brothers also acquit themselves well staying true to the form of Israelite tribesman

The movie begins with the purchase of Joseph by Potiphar, and his rise from that of a lowly slave to Potiphar's major domo where he captures the attention of Potiphar's evil wife, when he resists her attention and she accuses him of assaulting her, Potiphar soon knows he is innocent, and he embarks on the telling of his story of his boyhood, including the narrative of the rape of his half-sister Dinah (played with shyness and prettiness by Mexican actress Paloma Baeza), and the destruction of the Canaanite town of Schechem in revenge by her brothers Simeon (Vincenzo Nicoli) and Levi (Colin Bruce) Then we move to the central story whose tale baring and father's favour lead to his brother's brutal attack of him, where he is thrown into a pit and sold to Ishmaelite traders.

His rise in prison, his interpretation of the dreams of Pharaoh (Stefano Dionisi) at the same time as we are taken back to Canaan and see the story of Tamar( a pert and beautiful Kelly Miller ) and Judah (Michael Attwell).

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Mr. A. Mclauchlan on 11 April 2009
Format: DVD
I love the story of Joseph.. it always inspires and humbles.. but I had never seen a movie that did it justice.. and even one that still left you (like the bible) asking questions or wondering.. (like.. what happened re Potiphar's wife after Joseph became the Governor of all Egypt.. and how did Joseph's brother's explain to Jacob that he wasn't dead after all but that they were lyings cowards who now had to come clean?) I loved that they included the story of how Tamar got pregnant by Joshua even if they misrepresented the tale of how the first 2 sons had died because of their wickedness before the Lord.
This movie is not perfect.. not totally accurate scripturally.. ie " the rains never came but the Nile flooded" when it only required the Nile to flood.. and the miniscule effort shown re the silos to hold 7 years grain etc etc.. but the story telling was marvellous and the starting from the middle of the tale to tell the story and adding the beginning as an insert.. all marvellous telling of an amazing tale.. the tale of the brothers, and the growth of Joseph and his relation to Jacob was excellent and well played. I have seen Martin Landau in many a movie or programme but he moves me to tears by his portrayal of Jacob and his love for Joseph. I love finding nitpicks in movies and this one has many too.. (ie the Tamar who receives the seal & staff is a different woman than the beauty who plays her in most of the part) but overall it is an amazing truthful retelling of a biblical classic and if fairly accurate.. even the 'explicit' parts only show the realiry of the situation and any man can be moved to realise how easy it would have been to give in to temptation.. yet Joseph overcame..
