Extras: Making of Exodus - Waste Man: Documentary of the Antony Gormley Sculpture
Top customer reviews
Moses, as a baby, comes into the story during a stormy sea-crossing, where he falls from his mother's arms into the Red Sea and we see him swim unperturbed under water until he is saved by a rescuer. This whets our appetite as to his resilience to overcome life-threatening difficulties and to be restored to his awaiting kindred.
It is several scenes later, however, before we see them yet again being parted, as his mother is being chased by armed guards during a round-up of her people and has no other choice than to leave Moses on the beach under the gaze of the Pharaoh's wife, who is looking on with feeling and compassion, as she is forced to flee.
Moses is unaware of his true background as he is brought up in the Paraoh's household and even finds the favour of his adoptive parents. However, when he reaches adulthood and comes face to face with his natural mother, he realises his true heritage, following a series of events in which he unwittingly kills one of the Pharaoh's guards, and has to remain in Dreamland so as to escape the vengeance of the Pharaoh, who tells Moses' adoptive mother that he cannot make any exceptions.
As time passes Moses finds faith and solace and discovers the meaning of his mission in life: to lead the People of Dreamland to peace and freedom.
All in all Exodus 2007 is a worthwhile film and worthy of greater success.
The sculptor, Antony Gormley created a huge sculpture, made of furniture donated by the people of Margate, who also helped in its construction. The sculpture, "Waste Man", features in the film and the DVD also shows its construction.
A fight on the beaches ensues but is less convincing than the Margate Mod riots of the 1960s.The parting of the Red Sea gives us 5 seconds of CGI after which the money must have run out. I do wonder what the residents of Arlington House, the tower block overlooking Dreamland, thought of it all? The inhabitants are poor asylum seekers and illegal immigrants. Although thinking about it,that's plenty of cheap film extras with no hotel bills to pay.
