I have to make a note. There is a famous Finnish novelist, Mika
Waltari, who wrote a book with same name, "Sinuhe, The Egyptian".
I wonder was your movie based on this same book. Regarding
"Sinuhe" people wondered how Waltari managed to write so
authentic novel, without too much historical study. I think
there is something to do with Waltari's past lives. I have
heard, that Mika Waltari went so deep in his book, that he lived
in Egypt in his mind - he met at daytimes those people he wrote
