A rare and excellent cartoon for those interested in ancient history
5 August 2013 | by depont03See all my reviews

This is a French animation about the turbulent period of Egyptian history during the rule of the pharaoh Akhenaten (14 century BC), who is noted for abandoning traditional Egyptian monotheism in favor of worship of a single Sun god Aten. The story is based on a novel of french writer and archaeologist Christian Jacq. Although the story is aimed at young viewers (from age 7 and above), it pays unusual for such cartoons attention to traditions and culture of ancient Egypt. While it may not be 100% accurate, it manages to convey the spirit of this old civilization without being didactic and boring. The animation is also very well done, it has its own original style (it somewhat resembles the vector graphics of a computer game "Another World"). The art of the main characters and the backgrounds are superb, the weaker point could be the use of computer to bring these to life in some scenes.

Overall it is a rare and excellent cartoon for kids and their parents, for those who are interested in ancient history, 8/10
