Storyline

When 15 year old Stas Tarkowski and 9 year old Nel Rawlinson are kidnapped by rebels fighting for the great Arab leader - the Mahdi - their fathers desperately organize a search party. But the Mahdi uprising is spreading rapidly across North Africa and the chances of finding the children seem remote. Forced to rely on themselves, Stas and Nel, together with two young African slaves, Mea and Kali, escape their captors and head south across desolate country. In their search for a way home, they must battle wild animals, thunderstorms, hunger and malaria. Their journey to freedom brings them into contact with some colorful adult mentors: Kaliopoli, a displaced Greek, guides Stas through a critical encounter with the great Mahdi and Linde, an eccentric Polish cartographer, himself lost in the jungle, offers hope when Nel comes down with malaria and all hope for her survival seems lost.

My opinion
9 August 2007 | by (Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

I watch this movie last year. I like it, and I remember that, when I was young, I saw the original version of this movie (from year of 1973), and all the good memories from my childhood come back to me. I was very curious how this new version will reflect to my judgment at this time of our today's life. I decide to buy to both movie (the old and the now one) on DVD... For this movie: I like the way they make this film. It's different, but good. Also I read the book again (the last time was when I was 9 or 10) - I recommend to everybody who doesn't read the book or watch the film - Don't wait - it will be very good spend time!
