Al-mohager 1994
The biblical tale of Joseph is told from an Egyptian perspective in this interesting character study.

Adam (Michel Piccoli) has 8 sons, but Ram (Khaled Nabawy) is his favorite. Ram wants to travel to Egypt to study agriculture and help his family. But his brothers are jealous and his sister-in-law Basma (Safia El Emari) wants him dead, so the brothers tie him up and leave him in a ship’s hold to die. Ram manages to escape, and is sold into the service of one of the pharaoh’s top men. Ram manages to make an impression on the head of the pharaoh’s guard, Amihar (Mahmoud Hemida), who gives the young upstart a tract of land in the desert. If he can grow crops there, the land is his. Ram, with the help of his beloved Hati (Hanan Turk), succeeds, but soon is caught in a sexual, religious and political power struggle between Amihar and his beautiful fiancee Simihit (Youssra).
