great early arabian nights fantasy
30 June 2002 | by (netherlands) – See all my reviews

nice movie from pathe freres hand colored and very familiar with george melies work,not so full of special effects but the whole arabian atmosphere of the movie is a worth to look to this film,one early slasher scene when the thieves head is chopped off with a sword.
