Goofs

At the end of Moses' dream sequence, as he falls into the Nile River, he passes a sun-disk with rays that end in the appearance of human hands. This method of depicting the sun is more typical of the reign of Akhenaten (1351-1334 BCE) in the 18th Dynasty and the Amarna period. This is so because of the quasi-monotheistic "heresy" of Akhenaten in which worship of the sun god became prominent. This scene, however takes place during the 19th Dynasty reign of Seti I (1294/1290-1279 BCE). See more »

Hebrews: [singing] With the sting of the whip on my shoulder, with the salt of my sweat on my brow... Elohim, God on high, can you hear your people cry? Help us now, this dark hour...

An Artistic Rendition of A great Tale
11 November 2005 | by LocalfreakSee all my reviews

The first time I saw this film I thought 'Wow! I have to own that!' The telling of the story of Moses is powerfully done and the art is outstanding. It is the soundtrack, however, that brings this beauty together- the songs as well as the musical scores are catchy, beautifully composed and thoroughly breathtaking. The story has not been 'dumbed down' or watered down. It is accessible to children without alienating other generations and it humanises the characters wonderfully. The only thing in the entire film I found difficult was the pronunciation of Aaron's name- but that is obviously minor, it just took me a while to 'get' if that makes sense.

It's amazing, beautiful wonderful the art, music and sheer intelligence of the story will blow you away.
