The Egyptian

Synopsis: In eighteenth-dynasty Egypt, Sinuhe, a poor orphan, becomes a brilliant physician and with his friend Horemheb is appointed to the service of the new Pharoah. Sinuhe's personal triumphs and tragedies are played against the larger canvas of the turbulent events of the 18th dynasty. As Sinuhe is drawn into court intrigues, and bizarre secrets are revealed to him, he learns the answers to the questions he has sought since his birth. Short on historical accuracy but strong on plot and characterization.

capital of the world.

After my graduation

School of Life

established myself as

doctor on the coast ...

away from the house of my father ...

so as not to steal his patients.

But I found that

even the poorest of patients ...

come to port

a doctor so young.

I had to go into the streets, look for them.

It's too late for that.

Come here in the shade.

Here, sit down!

Can I help you.

In some cases blindness

can be cured with a needle.

No doctor can

catch my eye.

My first love started

when I drank a pitcher of beer,

and the filling of a new

way that displeased him.

And what is your problem?

Nothing, I'm as strong as

My name is Kaptah,

and decided to be his servant.

Even if I needed one,

could not pay,

and even that could not be

a ragged beggar.

Can be ragged,

but I'm smart.

I am strong and friendly ...

know and read.

You are absolutely right, I am

a poor set up.

But it is a poor doctor

and not find anything better.

Obey their orders ...

can beat me when

there is a reason ...

in return I will steal from you,

when there is a reason too.

Then admits he is a thief?

We are all thieves. Only

rogue deny it.

I will improve your reputation.

People will say:

"Should be a good doctor

since they can afford a servant "

With an eye?

Everyone will say:

"Must be a bad doctor

since it did not heal his own creation "

I will say that when I bought

me was totally blind,

and recovered

half of my vision.

Love you!

Love you!

Love, love!

Master, come quick!

Come quick!

Look! It's your chance!

I told him he would make his reputation.

Come on everybody!

Come here and watch!

Summer wonders what his

eyes ever beheld.

The Gods in person, taught

his art my master.

He knows the ancient spells and

and potions of our ancestors.
