is only actor of this movie. nice, charming, naive. a page from an old book. leaf of a death tree. a film who explore, not very well, the Arabian fascination. the recipes - Hollywood cuisine. the cast - beautiful girls like shadows of autumn. the action - childish and too precious. result - an amusing trip, few nostalgic memories and nothing else. bad thing - the possibilities to make a real interesting movie. and the choice for a sketch about fake universe. film of a legendary comedian, Ali Baba is not just temple on shoulders of Samson. it is only exercise for a public of ""plaisanteries and wist of time. but in every thing is measure. this movie is exception. for few middle expectations. so, the thief is the director. and Ali Baba is only shadow of a great comedian t end of his career.
