Caught this movie on satellite a few years ago and then was unable to find it for quite a while. You will not find Mel Gibson giving a long speech about Israeli freedom, or watch Julia Roberts light up the screen as one of the women in here, but I was fascinated and captivated by the feeling that I was looking at the actual people. It gave me new insight into the few passages of the Old Testament that it covers, and made me want to do research into the stories. I have seen this a few times already, and will see it again as I introduce it to friends. The producers and directors have given us a vision unique for our times that made me appreciate the stories more, made me search for this movie for a few years until I found it on Amazon. When a movie sticks to you like that, it is well worth recommending.
