The series limps to a finale
14 June 2009 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

By now, there have been four other Angélique films and the series is simply losing momentum. As far as this film goes, it is the least interesting of the series by far--so it isn't surprising that the films were discontinued after this one.

This film finds Angélique in a North African Muslim kingdom where she is now part of the Sultan's harem. Most of the first 2/3 of this film consist of her angrily refusing to be bedded as well as their trying to literally beat some sense into her. It all seems to go on too long and I was surprised that the Sultan simply didn't have her killed. Late in the film, she finally escaped with the help of two Christian prisoners and in the end she is FINALLY reunited with her husband--but not until there is a nasty twist near the end where her handsome rescuer is needlessly killed. My wife, in particular, hated this ending as the nice blond guy seems to have been killed off for no particular reason--and he was a pretty swell guy.

Overall, worth seeing if you've seen the other films but not an especially engaging film and there just isn't a whole lot of plot. As a result, this film simply limps to a conclusion.
