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
The one thing that attracted me to see this movie was the story,which is very good.The acting it's... lets just say they can do better if they try to do so (or maybe not).The movie gets boring in a few minutes and at one point you ask yourself why did you want to see this movie,and you remember it was for the story.I'm going to talk a little about the story.It's based on an ancient middle eastern fairy tale.Imad's love Amina gets taken in her dream by an evil genie.Now Imad travels the black desert so he can reach the Tree of Life and save her. In conclusion don't get high expectations when you go see the movie,or you will be disappointed,it's not worth your time.
