Storyline

Kamran is a 12 year old boy in the present day who discovers that his ancestor is the 11th Century Mathematician, Astronomer, Poet of Persia, Omar Khayyam. The story has been passed down in his family from one generation to another, and now it is his responsibility to keep the story alive for future generations. The film takes us from the modern day to the epic past where the relationship between Omar Khayyam, Hassan Sabbah (the original creator of the sect of Assassins) and their mutual love for a beautiful woman separate them from their eternal bond of friendship. Filmed almost entirely on location in Samarkand and Bukhara, Uzbekistan. Written by Kayvan Mashayekh, Writer/Director "The Keeper: The Legend of Omar Khayyam"

Great film that provides a brief epiphany
9 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wow, this turned out to be quite an interesting film! Through the first part of the movie, while the characters were being developed, I found myself wondering just where the film was taking me... and how long it would take to get there. By the second half though, the script proceeds quite well and leaves you with a feeling of just the slightest bit of understanding as to how things have developed not just within the Persian region, but all over the region. Initially I was kind of hoping more for the unveiling of the Assassins and all the action that would bring (this didn't really happen, though was touched upon briefly), but what I received was a tale told in two times of how people develop and affect those around themselves, as well as, within themselves. Don't get me wrong, the film isn't all philosophy, but it does weave a tale worth telling... if you pay attention.

I really enjoyed the film once I came to the realization that it was not going to be action-packed, the tale itself was well worth it!
