Desmond Jordan is an archaeologist who found an old parchment in which, the history of the Talking Mountain that is guarded by the guardian of an ancient and sought-after treasure hidden somewhere in the Sahara desert, was mentioned. After Desmond saves Anthea, a mysterious woman warrior, the two are hunted down by evil Lieutenant Ryker and his deserter legionaries, as well as El Hallem - a dangerous and infamous bandit of the desert, and the Khalif of Timbuktu who also wants the treasure of the mountain for himself. While Khalif orders his guards to find and capture Jordan, Philip, Jordan's son, travels from London to Morocco looking for his father who is in search of the location of the Talking Mountain, attracted by the mystery that it hides.Written by
Once upon a Time there were Secrets in the Sahara desert
When I was ten Years old this was the best series ever going on the Slovak (Czechoslovak ???) TV. Thanks god I found this series again (two DVDs althogether 360 minutes and 4 parts cca 2,50 Euros for both DVDsin Lacne knihy shop) I nearly began to cry. My god. I understand that the people from States or Australia will not like this kinda stuff, because this is no Hollywood at all (Thanks God Almighty). It is typical Italian romantic adventure series just as the tower of the firstborn but ten times better. Michael York was always one of my most favourite actors because he was not taking only Hollywood roles (he even played a role in one Slovak film !!!). Here we can even see Andie Mac Dowell and Ben Kingsley as well. Plenty of good actors. I really recommend this movie to the fans of the Mummy, so they can finally see what mystery, adventure and romantic means. I despise films without atmosphere and idea (rubbish like mummy and mummy returns). This is a must see for fans of films like Indiana Jones (Can' t wait to see the fourth instalment). Not so much adventure though, more mystery.
