The final episode states that Suleiman died in 1561. Since he ordered what is now known as the (Great) Siege of Malta in 1565, this is clearly wrong. His generally accepted date of death is 1566. See more »

Great Musical Score, But...
16 August 2006 | by RrrrandalaSee all my reviews

i was so looking forward to this film... methought the title held much interesting promise... i was cozy to it at first, however, as the film progressed, I couldn't understand why the director chose to propagandize rather than tell a story depicting the human condition... all the material was there to tell a great story of two peoples, but instead the director prostituted himself to covert politics instead of the art of storytelling... too bad.... the content turned me off as i was never given a chance to make my own mind up, but rather I was constantly told how to 'feel and think' about the story's dilemma... the director missed a great artistic opportunity... that's why i'm giving it a score of 1(awful)...but I did like the score!
