"Joseph," starring Ben Kingsley, Paul Mercurio, Martin Landau and Lesley Ann Warren (185 minutes), follows Joseph from his trying childhood to his ultimately triumphant life as Pharaoh's governor. Joseph's trials are portrayed with real emotion, as are his opportunities for revenge.
Cast into a pit by his jealous brothers, young Joseph pleads for mercy. Instead, the brothers sell the terrified boy into slavery in Egypt. But Joseph turns this agonizing betrayal into triumph. Academy Award winners Ben Kingsley and Martin Landau highlight an outstanding cast in this beloved Biblical tale of treachery and redemption. Joseph uses his gift for divining dreams to rise from slave to Pharaoh's most trusted aide, saving Egypt from seven years of famine. Then his brothers travel to Egypt in search of food...and right into Joseph's power. "Forgiveness is greater than vengeance," Joseph declares. "Compassion more powerful than anger." But can he forgive so grievous a wrong?About the Bible Collection

|Best Of TNT's Series Of Bible Characters Mar 15, 2007|
|I was extremely skeptical when this movie came out. I mean, what kind of movie can Bible-basher Ted Turner produce on one of the great heroes of the Bible - Joseph? Boy was I wrong. This is one of my all-time favorite movies and the best part is it faithfully tells the story directly out of the Bible with very few Hollywood additions. The acting is great. The actors are well known and correctly cast. Even the unknown lead of Joseph (Paul Mercurio) does a wonderful job. Even the scenes and settings are wonderful. Two thumbs way up!!|
For fans of this movie, look for other TNT offerings in this series - Moses, Abraham, David, Jacob, and others. Most of them are equally good - with I think David being my next favorite followed by Abraham.
|Awesome! Mar 8, 2007|
|I would have to say that this is one of the best "made-for-TV" (on TNT) biblical films I've seen. The acting was phenominal, the scenery..EVERYTHING. This movie is dead-on when it comes to accuracy from the Bible, which is pretty rare..almost unheard of in this day in age. It's a refreshing movie that has an honest, uplifting theme that will inspire you and your family. It could have easily been released in the theaters and it probably could have been bigger in popularity with a wider-span of audience around the world. Even so, I'm just glad that I can now buy the DVD! :)|
|Unbelievably Good!!!! Mar 8, 2007|
|As the title says, unbelievably good! They included all the information that the Bible has about this period of time that is usually excluded from a traditional telling of the story of Joseph in Egypt. This information helps explain why Jacob took the birthright away from the older boys and gave it to Joseph. Ben Kingsley was magnificent as Potiphar and he had a great script to work from. I felt that the attitudes and relationships between the characters was very real. Paul Mercurio was very good as Joseph and Joseph's manner was always respectful and submissive to those over him, which always worked to his benefit in the end. Joseph's family scenes showed a very wonderful relationship with his wife, Asenath. The movie is three hours long because I believe originally it was a made-for-cable mini-series. Well worth sitting through.|
|Superb dramatization of the Old Testament story of Joseph Feb 28, 2007|
|This film is a recounting of the Genesis tale of Joseph. Joseph is the most loved son of his father, and has a gift for prophecy. His older brothers hate him because of it and sell him into slavery. Joseph winds up in Egypt where he eventually becomes the second most powerful man in the kingdom after the Pharoah. During a famine, Joseph's brothers come to Egypt begging for grain, not knowing that the man who will decide their fate is their brother (whom they believe to be dead). This is one of a series of made for TV movies about important figures in the Old Testament. I've previously reviewed several other stories in this series, but this is the best of a strong series in my view. The acting is top notch, and I found the final confrontation between Joseph and his brothers to be particularly moving and well done. Like many of the films in this series, it is a story about faith and perserverance. The writer and producer did a particularly good job of fleshing out the story of Joseph from Genesis without adding lots of non-Biblical threads. One thing that I like about this movie (and about the series as a whole) is that they are not overdone. These aren't special effects-laden films with casts of thousands, but rely on writing and good acting to convey the tale. The sets and the costumes are realistic and give the film a Biblical feel without being ostentatious. The bottom line is that this is, in my opinion, the way that the Bible should be brought to film.|
|Great Bible Story Dramatizations Feb 18, 2007|
|This entire series of Bible stories by this Italian production group is simply splendid. These are relatively low cost films but they are very skillfully produced to maximize the quality of the story being told. Of course we Christians and Jews will sit around and pontificate about every little error or short cut the movie script incurs, never the less, it is ultimately left to the actors and directors and their considerable skill to pull off what I consider to be, for the most part, some of the most successfully done Bible story dramatizations that have ever been produced on film, with or without a big budget. My favorite is the story of Abram, the movie Joseph coming in a close second, and this movie, Moses, coming in a close third or even equalling Joseph. Bravo bravo - Please make more! My five stars applies to this complete series of movies - Obviously some are done a little better than others, but the effort is exemplary.|
