The Movies You Would Like To Watch On & On (24 movies items)

"This movie tells the story of Omar Mukhtar, an Arab Muslim rebel who fought against the Italian conquest of Libya in WWI. It gives western viewers a glimpse into this little-known region and chapter of history, and exposes the savage means by which the conquering army attempted to subdue the natives"

My Movie Diary 2010 (365 movies items)

"Aug.22 Seldom-mentioned war epic about the invasion of Libya by Mussolini's army is harrowing but the battle scenes are lame."
