Angélique 5: Waiting and wishing
10 January 2016 | by unbrokenmetalSee all my reviews

Peyrac follows the vessel of the pirates who abducted his beloved Angélique, but finds that she is not board of that ship anymore. She is in the hands of the slave trader who had lost the auction for her, decided to steal her if he can't buy her, then the trader passes her on to the sultan's harem. Now Peyrac cannot openly sail into the port of Algiers with the whole crew, so he goes there alone, disguised as a galley slave, hoping to free Angélique somehow. But he finds that she is well guarded and already on her way across the desert... never to return?

Colorful oriental adventure, basically worth watching and a good final part of the series. But the problem is the second third of the movie. The first 30 minutes were exciting, but in the next 30 minutes nothing is happening. Angélique sits in the harem, waiting either for the sultan or Peyrac to appear. You have to sit through 30 minutes, too, until in the last half hour, the action starts to move again. I voted 8/6/7/6/6 for the 5 movies of the series. Actors Mercier and Hossein continued their co-operation with a western, 'Cemetary Without Crosses', but the Angélique series was finished, probably at the right time before it became tiresome.
