Absolutely amazing!!!!, 17 Feb 2004
This film was produced almost 30 years ago. However, the sound and visuals still deliver. The visualisation of 7th Century Mecca and Medina is impressive. Considering the limitations on showing the face of the Prophet and the central characters, the story-telling flows very well and is educational. The acting is average, apart from Anthony Quinn, who is pure class. Its the only film I have seen about the origins of Islam, and I enjoyed it. I would recommend it to anyone interested in finding out more about the origins of Islam and the trials and tribulations that were faced by The prophet and his followers.
