You really feel as though you are a part of the expidition from the source of the Nile in Sudan all the way to the end in Cairo where it empties into the Mediterranean Sea.
Dangerous, awe-inspiring, and educational. This film achieves in 45 min. what Hollywood only dreams of.
When you title a film "Mystery of the Nile," the buyer should expect to receive a little more history, in-depth information, and...mystery. This film is mostly just a travelogue of a group going down the Nile.
And the soundtrack--awfully done! The music itself was interesting and appropriate, but it was mixed at such a high volume that you literally *cannot* hear what the narrators are saying much of the time. It's like trying to have a conversation with someone in a car while the radio is turned up all the way.
Nice photography, but a very frustrating experience overall.
The film shows an expedition of 100 days aprox across the Nyle. there are differents situation and different people in this period
The best value is the image quality and audio track, the music (very good multi channel) is like "tribal music", and is perfect according to the topic.
The aerial images are very well realized, and achieve an interesting effect

From the write up, I expected more scenary shots. Had lots of facts, many I don't remember learning before. I thought I paid a little too much for this.Published on April 22, 2013 by Virginia L. Tracy
