all to little avail
13 June 2013 | by (Greenwich - London) – See all my reviews

Veteren Italian actor, Renzo Merusi, directed just three films, one in the 50s, one in the 60s and this in 1971 and his inexperience shows. My viewing was not helped by being an inferior print and certainly the pleasant score and stunning scenery would be better appreciated on a finer print. Nevertheless there is not much original here and far too many horse (why not camels?) and jeep chases across the sands of North Africa. One of the most interesting points is that the lovely Edwige plays the child of a native mother and English father, she herself being of a mixed marriage. She's great, although she never seems to sport the costume that appears on the poster and the rest of the cast adequate. But there is nothing inspiring here and too many telescopic lens shots and distant killings, all to little avail.
