Storyline

Based on ancient middle eastern fairy tales written thousands of years ago, and passed down from generation to generation. Imad's beautiful true love (Amina) is snatched in the middle of the night right from her dream in which Imad shared with her, by an all mighty Djinn (evil Genie). Imad, only empowered by the pure energy of love and passion for her, finds himself having to cross 'the three valleys of the black desert', which are represented as the 'three vises of man' (Fear, Greed, and Lust) which come at him in different forms and are represented as both external and internal demons. Guided only by a fortuneteller and an angel, Imad must overcome these vises, in order to prove the purity of his soul and reach the 'Tree of Life'. No man has been able to achieve this, but he must, to save what matters most, his true love Amina from the supernatural Djinn. Written by SS

Painful !!!
13 February 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I should have known, a movie that has only 8 votes but gets a score of 8.9 had something suspicious about it. Add to that, alarm bells should have sounded, when I found out that the movie writer also produced; directed and starred in this flop.

After watching around 40 minutes of this drivel (it was so painfully awful) I gave up and turned on the television - watching commercials on the TV were more interesting than putting myself through the agony of poor acting; filming; direction and "special effects" of this lame film.

It truly amazes me that there are people in Hollywood who are willing to finance movies like this one.

Save yourself the pain of wasting even a minute of your life in watching this title. There are plenty of other (and better) movies out there.
