Synopsis
Three hundred years after the flood, three clans are tearing each other apart: Jacob the breeder and his son's clan; the nomadic hunters led by Esaü and the settled farmers whose chief is Hamor. Esaü the hunter harbours a mortal hatred for Jacob, his younger brother, since he usurped Esaü's natural primogeniture. Cloistered in his camp, Jacob mourns the supposed death of his son, Joseph. Hamor's son, Sichem, kidnaps Dina, Jacob's daughter.

A good movie who portray the biblical people as they really were, african people or black people if you prefer! The actors are greats, the scenes and etc and the language is in bambara which make the movie even more realist...Esau is played by the famous malian singer Salif Keita!

Have you actually viewed this film in its entirety? This is the first I heard about it and am wondering when it was released.
