Storyline

Leo Vincey receives a map from his late father, leading him to the legendary city of Kor in search of an explanation for his mysterious ancestry. He is accompanied by his girlfriend Roxanne. He discovers that he is the only descendant of an Egyptian priest who had been executed for the crime of falling in love with the Egyptian Princess. The ruling queen Ayesha, or rather She, is the same Egyptian Princess of centuries ago, her beauty and youth look being preserved by magic. She becomes convinced that Leo is the reincarnation of her former lover, and wants to kill him. Leo and Roxanne will have to fight against surprise attacks on them, but survival in that foreign land with strange customs, is difficult. Leo is terribly attracted to She's beauty, but at the same time he fears for her obscure spirit, and finally he must take a decision - to run away from her, or to love her and die. Written by Artemis-9

Trivia

In all the other film versions of H. Rider Haggard's "She", Leo Vincey's guardian has been called 'Horace Holly'. In this one, the nameplate on his door says 'Ludovico H. Holly'. In the books, Haggard calls him L. Horace Holly, so both variations are plausible. See more »

Where is She?
11 October 2006 | by gridoonSee all my reviews

Although this adaptation of Haggard's book is apparently more faithful to it than the 1982 version (the only other version I've seen so far), it is a much less enjoyable film. "She" doesn't appear until halfway through the film, and she is a beautiful and buxom blonde (Ophélie Winter), but you get the feeling that eternity with her would be boring - I would much rather spend only a normal lifetime with the other major female character, the feisty brunette Roxanne. She is played by Marie Bäumer, who adds the only real spark to the film; her fist-fight with another woman is the first lively scene of a movie that has been, up to that point, boring and meandering. The second half is rendered pointless by an ending that doesn't make much sense, at least in the way it's shown in this version. Not recommended. (*1/2)
