Storyline

In the 11th millennium, Shaddam IV, ruler of the Galactic Empire, rids himself of his competitor Duke Leto Atreides by giving him control of the desert planet Dune also called Arrakis; fully aware that its present owner, Baron Vladimir Harkonnen, will not give it up without a fight. The reason is that Arrakis is the source of the valuable spice, a substance produced by enormous and dangerous sandworms, which bestows special mental qualities on anyone who consumes it. A short while later Harkonnen does indeed succeed in ambushing and massacring Leto and his men. Leto's mistress Lady Jessica, who is a member of the clairvoyant order of Bene Gesserit, manages to escape into the desert with her son Paul, and after a long and dangerous march they finally encounter the Fremen, the long suppressed desert tribe of Arrakis. Impressed by Paul's clairvoyant abilities, tribal prince Stilgar takes in the fugitives. Very soon the Fremen are convinced that Paul is their long-prophesied redeemer, and... Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Like the 1984 film adaptation. The mini-series did not use the ending from the novel. See more »

Goofs

The moons in the background never move (because they are on painted "translights"). The most noticeable example is out of the Arrakeen palace window. The moon never moves from its position through a gap in the shield wall for the entire duration of the banquet. See more »

Superb. Even my non-sci-fi wife was captivated.
7 July 2001 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

The comments immediately below from Germany sum up how you will find this film. All I can add is that last night while my wife was sleeping when I put this film in the VCR, she woke up and enjoyed watching this film. This surprised me since she is not into sci-fi films. We found the acting, script, sets and costumes were excellent, and this comes from a couple in their early 50's who can be quite critical of films. See it and enjoy - just keep in mind it is not the usual thin Hollywood story but is from one of the great writers of last century.
