1. Napoleon 3D - The Eagle and the Sphinx

"Highly Recommended. Napoleon's expedition to Egypt in 1797; while meant to strike at the British caused as much or more trouble with the Egyptians, and ended up as a great military failure; however, it was a resounding success for our understanding of ancient Egypt. In this production, the producers have taken approximately 200 engravings done by members of the expedition and, using computer technology and live scenes and actors, literally brought this incident of some two centuries ago to life. Viewers will be thrilled by the tour of an Egyptian temple; in fact, all of this production is a visual delight. The narration, which is read very well, is a fine complement to the visuals. Concepts and events concerning the expedition are all explained well overall; it is a marvelous production." -EMRO Review
"Highly Recommended. This very balanced presentation uses original drawings and 3-D animation techniques, journals, letters and interviews with historians to allow viewers to visually accompany Napoleon on his Egyptian campaign of 1797, revealing the naval battles with Admiral Nelson, the Battle of the Pyramids and early Egyptian archaeology. This experience awakened Europe and the Islamic Egyptians to the glory of ancient Egypt." -NAMTC & NMM Review
"Highly Recommended. Visually stunning and historically significant; it was during this campaign that the French discovered the Rosetta Stone, which functioned as the key to deciphering hieroglyphics." -National Media Review
Using highly sophisticated digital technology, this is one of the most visually engrossing documentaries every produced, recreating a saga of immense magnitude. Two hundred famous engravings by the actual artists and scientists who took part in Napoleon Bonaparte’s historic Egyptian expedition of 1797 have been colorized, modeled in 3D, and animated to tell the monumental story of two great civilizations colliding, deeply marking each other and the course of history. Produced by France Television. 02/10DE JSCA 52 min.
