Rebellion against evil ruler, by the numbers
5 September 2013 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

The tyrant Dakar (Paul Muller) suppressed the people of his country with high 'tributes' long enough, they think. When Princess Fatima (Irène Tunc) refuses to marry Dakar and escapes from the palace, she falls in love with Nadir (Rik Battaglia) who wants to lead a rebellion against the tyrant. Luckily, his father has hidden a big treasure somewhere that can finance a whole army. Funny he didn't think of that before, during those many years of suppression when they were almost starving. But the writers' idea of 'clever' shows well in the scene when Nadir finds the princess floating in a boat. Mercenaries have been looking for Princess Fatima all over the country, and then he discovers an unknown woman wearing plenty of jewels. 'You must be Fatima', his father says, and everybody looks at the old man totally surprised. He needs to explain how he guessed this and everybody admires his wisdom. Maybe there are so many princesses floating around in boats that they are hard to distinguish...

A collection of the usual Oriental clichés you've seen all before, made on a very low budget. The set decoration looks like a children's birthday party with gold stars glued to the wall. I watched a 74 minute fullscreen version of a film that was originally 87 minutes long and in widescreen format, yet I don't think additional scenes of better quality would change my impression much.
