I had high expectations when I watched this movie. Being in the Harem I thought there would be extravagant sets and beautiful clothings. Well, I was wrong. Instead the colours used were dark most of the time, The clothings were nice but too plain. The lighting was constantly inadequate, making me very bored.
As for the story, I could not possibly follow the story. To me it seems that there were so many subplots and hence very confusing. I was also confused about how an eunoch could have sex with a woman. This film is not my cup of tea.
