Diary for my Children









A film by Jerzy Kawalerowicz

Poland, 1966


Directed by Jerzy Kawalerowicz and adapted from the famous novel by Bolesław Prus, Pharaoh is a truly epic production, focusing on a young Ramses XIII as he ascends to the throne of the ancient Egyptian empire.


Complete with huge battle scenes, towering sets, stunningly choreographed sequences and spectacular cinematography, Pharaoh became the most successful film in Polish history. But unlike it's Hollywood counterparts, Kawalerowicz's authentic epic remains resolutely anchored in ideas as well as spectacle.

“It's a stunning film, an ancient fable that's as austere as any Hollywood treatment of Egypt is ornate, and yet packed with detail and action that makes it utterly convincing” Glenn Kenny
