Ancient Egyptians

A superb film from Warner Brothers which like the one from the BBC I previously blogged about is also "part personal drama, part documentary, part history lesson". This one is good not only because of the CGI effects it employs that help to bring ancient Egypt "alive" to the viewer, but also because it tells real stories from that culture that most folks have never heard of: murder in an Egyptian temple; two sisters betrayed by their mother and tossed out into the street to fend for themselves; etc. I really liked this one and felt that I caught a glimpse into what ancient Egypt was really like, not just for the nobility but the common man as well. Get a copy of this (buy, rent, whatever), you won't be sorry!
