Malaysia, the second half of 1800. The English Queen Victoria owns the domain of the eastern lands of Borneo, commanded by Lord James Guillonk, fierce and ruthless conqueror, father of the beautiful Marianna Guillon, nicknamed "the Pearl of Labuan". The brave Sandokan is a young Indian prince, that as a child he lost his kingdom because of the invasion of English. Sandokan is now the captain of a den of pirates who make constantly attacks against the British army.
The series Sandokan, which fictionally took place in the jungles of Sabah, Borneo, was filmed in the Malaysian Province of Terengannu, including Kapas Island, a small tropical island with palm fringed white sand beaches and dense jungles across the town of Marang. See more »
Originally this mini-series was also on Dutch television , somewhere around 1976.It was a major success; almost divine pictures and a true romantic story. I looked for Sandokan, first on Video much later also on DVD. When I found it, all the stores on the internet could not deliver this item. Finally got my new copy through Ebay; the whole series , plus the '63 release of the young Sandokan, and the '96 return of Sandokan.
for those of you not remembering all; He does get away in the end together with Yanes de Gomera and three other loyalist... In the return, 20 years later (both Kabir Bedi and Philippe Leroy are still the same!!!)they fight their way back to Mompracem...
Watching this series again made me feel proud to not be an Englishman.
