I loved this movie and could not wait to hear and see one of the tales of Solomon and Sheba. I was just a kid when I saw this movie, and I was so entranced I looked both Solomon and Sheba up on the computer. I believe Showtime made the movie, they did a beautiful job on the scenery and authenticity of the clothes. I loved that they used Halle Berry, showing people that the Queen of Sheba was of African origin. Not a Caucasian like they use for Cleopatra and truly getting it wrong. Anyonewho says that this movie is bad is full of it. The acting was great and told of two monarchs who fell in love, but knew the reality of the situation. There story has been told for lifetimes and this movie did a good job of depicting this. Two thumbs up for me.
