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

Terrible.
13 February 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

At the time I am writing this, this movie has a vote of 8.5. I saw the cover of this film and thought "well that looks crap" but due to the score, I thought I'd give it a shot. I watched the first 15 min of it and I've got no bloody idea what was going on, all the bad effects was making my eyes water so I turned it off. The director clearly wanted to achieve a mystical sense, but all he seemed to achieve was headache for the viewer.

The sound quality is quite bad. The voices have a low rumbling noise and combined with the bad English some of the actors spoke made it almost impossible to understand what they were saying. You can tell the film roll has been lying around because the first 5 minutes of the film has scratches and debris all over it. At first I thought it was an effect, but now I am pretty sure it was not.

For an Arab film, they could of at least picked some more hot girls. The acting... well what can I say about the acting, it is as good as the actor's spoken English, which is pretty crap.

I don't know if a middle eastern viewer would even like this. It is just a headache. If this film was made back in the time of world war II, the Nazi's would have used it as a torture device.
