Beautiful piece of work
22 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Others will need to comment on its accuracy, but this tracing of the life of Muhammad from his early days in Mecca up to his death makes for a lively, colorful, and credible account of the founding of Islam.

The documentary attempts to separate fact from fiction by interviewing a range of experts with a deep knowledge of Islam and of the history of that era. They don't agree among themselves on every single point, but the view of Muhammad that emerges is of a humble man and brilliant strategist whose mission was peace and harmony. If you're open to that view, this documentary will fill you with regret for the way Islam has been twisted, both by its enemies and by some of its extremist apparent friends.

For "balance," a couple of extremists are even included among those briefly interviewed.

The visuals are striking, including the desert landscapes and the imposing shots of modern day Mecca and Medina. The narrator, Rageh Omaar, is an articulate and personable guide through this thicket of contention.
