1.0 out of 5 stars Please can we have the whole series! 15 Dec 2005
By Kew
If this was the full version of this brilliant series, I would be giving it 5 stars. The acting is superb and the sets quite stunning. The story is spoilt by the amount that has been cut out of the english version. Some of the stories have been shortened and some, such as the three brothers, cut out altogether. I agree with the other reviewer who recommended getting the american version - that way you can enjoy the series to the full. I hope that one day it will be re-released in it's entirety for the english public.

3.0 out of 5 stars lost nights 27 April 2006
Having enjoyed the original tv broadcast of this adaptation, I was disappopinted to find that the dvd edition has been edited heavily, thus spoiling the continuity of the film and cutting out much of the humour. The tale of Ali Baba & the 40 thieves is the tale that suffers most from this heavy-handed editing. Try telling a favourite tale to the kids minus their favourite bits! Just as well I kept my my video recording of the film.

4.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful array of stars 11 Jan 2005
By Suzanne Moore VINE VOICE
This version of Arabian Nights is closer to the actual story than any other version I have heard of and has a huge variety of actors.
Dougray Scott is brillant as the Caliph (ruler) beginning with him verging on the edge of madness after the betrayal of his firsrt wife and brother and then as his second wife, a friend who has loved him since they were children and the daughter of the Caliph's chief consultant, brings him from the brink of madness and saving her own life by keeping him distracted by telling him different stories.
This wonderful story as well as being funny and well performed also teaches other that stories can teach us many things.

2.0 out of 5 stars Go for the complete version 4 Oct 2011
By Nadja
As per October 7, 2011, you will be able to purchase "Arabian Nights - Abenteuer aus 1001 Nacht [2 DVDs]" from amazon.de for EUR 12,99. It's the complete version of 178 minutes and comes in English and German. Personally, I'm really glad I was patient and look forward to watching these very well-played and suspenseful stories again.
