Movie Reviews

A true story with more imagination than Hollywood has
Phillip | California United States | 04/24/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Based on a true story, this intrigueing story has no biased axe to grind. A French girl taken captive by pirates and sold to the Sultan of the Ottoman empire eventually becomes his willing favorate. Her own infant son is murdered by another of the Sultan's wives who wants her own son to take the throne. The French girl outwits her rivals and ultimately plays a great part in the destiny of Turkey. Don't confuse this movie with the other movie of the same title. It is unfortunate that more people can't see this one. It's not sex trach."
Helen M. Orcutt | 06/21/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a story of Aimee Rebucq de Rivery, who was kidnapped from a ship and sold to a sultan's harem, there she bore Abdul Ahmid a son but it was murdered, she was given a son (he was the son of another harem lady, that was killed) when Abdul Ahjmid dies, Selim the new Sultan asked her to stay, Selim was killed and the woman who had him killed put her son Mustafa on the throne, Aimee killed Mustafa to put Mahmud, her adopted son on the throne. This is a wonderful true story. END"
Horrible movie!
A 23 year old woman | Virginia | 08/22/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"First of all, let me say how happy I was not to pay for this movie. It is horrible! The script laughable. People did not say "hi" in mid 18th century Turkey. I could write a better script. This movie was so bad, I fast-forwarded it to the end, couldn't stand to watch the whole thing. The costumes were silly and looked like something you could by at K-Mart. Which is a shame, because this could have been a great movie. Aimee's story deserves so much better than this. Also, why was this rated "R?" No erotcism, no nudity, no chemistry between the actors. Do yourself a favor and skip this in favor of "Kama Sutra; A Tale of Love.""
Catholic School to Harem
Helen M. Orcutt | Depew,OK | 08/29/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is based on a true story. Aimee was from Matineque; her uncle was sending her to a catholic school in France. She is caught kissing a young soldier in the study at a ball, and is put on a boat back to Martineque. Pirates take over the ship and she is sold into slavery. Being a virgin, she was worth her weight in gold. She is bought by the Ottoman Harem. She is chosen to be the sultan's wife, but she isn't willing to sleep with an old man that she isn't in love with. She does give in and she falls in love with Abdul. Sineperver (his 1st wife) is very jealous. Aimee has a son and Sineperver has him strangled while they are sleeping. Abdul has another son (which he brings to her bedside) who's mother died at birth. Aimee was asked to be his mother, and from that moment on she was. Abdul dies and Selim takes over as sultan. The Genecaries hate him and kill him. Thus making Mustafa (Sineperver's son) the new sultan. Aimee kills Mustafa with a daggar that Sineperver had given to her years before, to kill herself with. Now her son was sultan. This true story has excitement, love, passion, and the true meaning of being a family."
