colorful exotic images and the most beautiful soundtrack
After sailing the seas with Sandokan, you might wonder what life on earth still has to offer us. Sandokan's charismatic and heroic behavior is brought to us with colorful exotic images and the most beautiful soundtrack, combining sitars with steady seventies grooves. I watched this series with a four year old kid, who can't read and doesn't understand a word Italian, but he was screaming along with me Sandokan!, whenever the title song started again. The fighting and the many exotic animals are also enjoyable for the very young, though I can imagine not for the most sensitive of them. Some people get killed pretty nasty. To nowadays standards the speed is slow, but that's OK, so you have more time to enjoy the eastern environments. This series must be inspired by Serge Leones spaghetti western moods and I know that the writer of the Sandokan story was a favorite of Ché Guevara. Sandokan is against the western imperialism, a fighter for freedom... and nice to watch with the kids on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
