Unique and kinda epic
31 July 2014 | by (Québec) – See all my reviews

I was very pleased to watch this and very surprised that this movie was forgotten.

This is a very well made movie with great costumes, sets and scenery. It has good visual effects even in battle scenes specially for the 60s. It also has very good acting and awesome dialogues. The story is a bit banal but its an Arabian tale type of movie which is quite rare in general and even more for french movies.

Don't believe the score it got here, French people mostly always down rate their movies. You can nearly always ad two points to a movie rated by French people. This movie is worth at least an 8 and its a must seen.

Most Arab main characters aren't Arabs but its not so bad, they end up being quite credible specially since its in the 9th century in Iraq. I guess you can think they were more like Persians or something. Anyways this movie isn't about historical accuracy at all.

This is a very unique movie, the kind you will probably only see once.
