Ten Commandments Full Movie 1956 Tagalog Version Of Bible
When DeMille directed The Ten Commandments, he took four months to make the movie, and it was the most expensive movie up until that time. DeMille's movies always had great story lines. DeMilles movies were usually good with action and they had great visuals. You can never forget the greatness of DeMille.
One of the effects of watching the movie is that one gets a sense of the huge effort that went into making it. The sets are beautiful. Each person has their own costumes and quality. There are many moments, and people on set, when DeMille steps away from the camera and looks up at the sky. The movie has a mystical feel to it. Nothing could be more fitting for the holy book it was based on. It was made in Technicolor. DeMille would always strive for realism in his movies. The 1959 film The Buccaneer is one of DeMilles best movies. This movie has a lot of realistic action in it. The critics would agree that this is the best of DeMilles movies. The movie is based on the sea adventure story of the 18th century.
What DeMilles presents in the center of his cast is a Moses that we have never seen before. So new is he that in almost every respect he is completely different from the Biblical Moses. The boy from the Nile becomes an older man on the Thbone mountain, so different is the Moses of the picture from the Biblical Moses that the movies revelation, whereby God is portrayed as suffering for his people in their slavery and where the god of love but once pokes through the veils of time and space and flings aside the veils of the temple and appears in the flesh, must make us wonder if the Biblical Moses is any more than a type of Christ. "Val Kilmer gives an inspired performance, thrilling to witness but difficult to comprehend. He is the greatest of all the current Christian actors. He has recreated the image of Moses and of Christ in a way that has not been equaled since the time of Daniel or the dying words of St. Paul. For those who are not so afraid of this mysterious prophet as to be blinded by their own fervor, they will respond to the clear and calm acceptance of his message and they will never forget the impression of his appearance. Some of the finest acting of the year has gone into this production, where the director, the script and the leading role have all been completely true to the Biblical tradition. The final product is something you have never seen before." -- Jim Paul www.freerepublic.com d8a7b2ff72
On the technical level, we have the finest cinematography of the period, and the framing is always perfect. The best example is the opening scene: as the Pharaoh's army marches across the desert, we see the men's beards flowing past their faces. If you were going to have a scene like this in the desert, you could have shot this sequence in the desert or had a desert set, but you would have made the picture look fake. In The Ten Commandments, de Mille manages to accomplish it in three takes. Gershwin's music adds to the feeling of the film. Swenson says in his prologue: "The music has a folklike quality, but it's rich with a lyricism of its own, which is surprising in an orchestral score." High praise from the greatest musical director of them all.
Second, the story itself. Some caution here: While it is generally thought that Biblical Hebrew had a greater proportion of long words to begin with (there are 25,000 words in the Tanakh(the Jewish Bible), whereas most modern dialects have fewer than 7,000), Biblical Hebrew is also notoriously difficult. Right out of the gate, Moses asks God where he can live, and God replies, Where I choose! Thus, DeMille is forced to carry around a lot of geographical information about where various Biblical characters live. As Swenson points out: Moses, who is born in Amarna and adopted as a child by Pharaoh, lives in the Sinai wilderness, but as an adult he visits the future King Solomon at Jerusalem. If youre not careful, you might think the Bible is about a Jewish menagerie.
Third, and this is the real conundrum, is that I think it is a mistake to read the movie the Bible as the Bible. The real story is one of God, the Creator, who speaks to Moses through a burning bush, Pharaoh, who is subservient to the worship of God, and the faithful Israelites, who are commanded to worship no other god but Yahweh alone. Indeed, if we follow the narrative, the whole movie seems almost irrelevant. What is the point of the Exodus if Moses doesnt lead the Israelites out of Egypt after all? Why go to the Sinai if God doesnt direct his chosen people to live there? Perhaps, but this is a Hollywood movie. So the givenshould be compared, to the best of our ability, to the Bible. Until we get a better handle on how the story in the movie breaks down with the plain sense of the Bible, we are bound to go by feel. A very good viewer, however, will be able to spot the chasms.
