An enthralling recreation the story of The Exodus on screen with a spectacular cast, scenery and costume From the birth of Moses amidst the terror of the mass murder of newborn infant boys by the Egyptians, to Moses parting. All the vents captured splendidly with the exception of the glossing over of the Korachite rebellion, and the omission of the attack of the Amalekites on the Israelites in the desert, and the ensuing battle which Moses won for Israel through prayer.
Superb performance as always by Ben Kingsley as a sterling combination of a shy and stuttering to passionate and charismatic leader. A likeable and strong Aaron played by David Suchet, and Christopher Lee as an arrogant and imperious Ramses.
And of course Maurice RoŽves as the rabble rousing malcontent Zerack.
Geraldine McEwan as an excitable Miriam and , Anita Zagaria as an attractive and wise Zipporah and Enrico Lo Verso as a passionate and loyal young Joshua.
All scenes blend in well with each other. The spiritual and historic message remains intact with a poginant and hopeful ending. A very instructive portrayal.
