Did You Know?


This movie will be part of a trilogy. Muhammad will never be shown in any of the three films for the respect of his character. This is specifically done in all media in Islam countries to avoid idolization of a renown character to an actor's face. Instead, he is meant to be known by his religious and historical personality profile. See more »

A work of art
29 August 2015 | by alibazarganSee all my reviews

This movie is in a class of its own. It is a feast for the senses: like a work of art, a painting, or a poem. It is a gentle breeze of fresh air, in a lonely, nonspiritual world. Unlike anything I had experienced before, in the venue in which I saw the film, the majority of viewers broke down in tears of awe at least once during the showing. You could see people shed tears all around. One lady nearby let out whimpers all along, as the film was just too strong for her to control her emotions. Amazing. Just a note for the producers if they ever read this: I wish that after all 3 parts are released, the entire trilogy is shortened into one single film for those who do not have the patience to sit through a 10 hour marathon (of all 3 parts). I think for an impatient viewer, joining all 3 parts into a 2-3 hour movie would be an excellent fit.
