So Mordecaiificently Marvelous!
I was filled with pride when I saw this even though I had nothing to do with it. It is so beautifully produced. The acting and the music. Sublime in every respect. I kept experiencing something like regret, also, however. I kept wishing The Rebbe was here because I wanted to see and hear what he thinks about this marvelous creation. Don't you imagine he would highly approve?
May our L-rd cause the distribution of this good and inspirational work and many others similar to it to reach every corner of the world. (Amen).
p.s. My favorite part was where Haman is describing to the King how to treat a man honored by the king. The actor did a particularly fine job there.
I just love this so much!
Thank you for making it.

Enjoyed watching this video. Should the young king be having a doll of Mordechai (might be like an idol).

Some inaccuracies
1. It adopts the wrong interpretation according to whom Vashti was not executed but simply removed from the Palace.
2. It shows the plot of hanging Haman after the talk with the king about honoring Mordechai and after Mordechai parading on the king's horse, while in the Megilla it happened right after the first feast, before that busy night.
3. In Haman's meeting with his family about killing Mordechai, the movie shows only a few sons, while he had 10 sons with him.
4. Achashverosh tells his servant to kill Haman and only after Charvona intervenes to hang Haman, while in the Megilla it says that Charvona is the one who gives the idea of executing him.
5. It shows that Haman was strangled in the palace at the meal, while in the Meguila he was sent to be hanged
