A great epic movie!
27 July 2004 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

I must say that Anthony Quinn is one of the greatest actors of the 20th century.

The movie is about the birth of Islam in the 6th century.

Moustapha Akkad did a great job with this picture. The locations where very good, good actors, beautiful photographed by Jack Hildyard (he was also director of photography in "the bridge on the river kwai"), and the beautiful music who was conducted by Maurice Jarre!! I must say the music in this movie is one of the best film scores in the film history!!

one last thing: Moustapha Akkad, I like your 2 epic movies very well but I don't understand why you have not make a movie since 1981?? You are a great director but you should be make more movies!
