An excellent movie about traditions
20 August 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

First of all this is a movie about traditions. Omar Sharif and Kabir Bedi put together an impressive show about Arabian traditions and how they resisted in time. The movie pictures the written and unwritten laws of the desert, the mighty Sahara, dominating Africa from west north and east to central part of the continent. I think it is a spectacular insight in the Arabian way of life, that of the emirs and high life society, very well pictured. I would recommend this movie to everyone that wants to know more about the traditions and the way of life of the Arabians. The lifestyle of the emirs, their daily routine, their trade and links with the exterior, their beliefs and religion, their allies and enemies in the desert.
