Arabian Nights back to product details

Imaginative production

A thoroughly enjoyable, lavishly produced version of this classic. Like the Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings series, it made good use of the creative talents of art directors, costume designers, and special-effects experts, without shortchanging the plot or the screenplay. I was a little nervous about the narrative device of focusing so heavily on the backstory for Scheherezade and her sultan, which threatened to get all PC, sticky-sweet, and anachronistic, but the director pulled it off. The cast is above average. The conceptions are original. The costumes and sets are several notches above the usual. Watching this disc has made me want to go put my hands on a good translation of the Thousand Nights and a Night.
