Sanders of the Desert
9 May 2007 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

This old-fashioned -- even by the standards of 1953 -- and romantic view of life in Egypt tries hard to merge various plots about romantic love, jewel smuggling and the White Man's Burden as lovers try to meet and British medical services try to prevent bubonic plague among the superstitious Bedouins. The result is a bit of a muddled mess, but the whole is redeemed, in no small part, by Nicolas Hayer's dazzlingly brilliant photography. Oddities such as telephone service in tents abound, and there is a lot of poor looping in the soundtrack.

The performances are fairly stolid, which contrasts oddly with the metaphor-laden dialogue. The result is a picture worth seeing once, for the visuals.
