30TH ANNIVESARY EDITION 2-DISC SET! The Message - English Language
In 7th century Mecca, powerful leaders are in conflict with Mohammed, who attacks their way of life and the injustice it produces. After a revelation from God, Mohammed agrees to take arms against the powerful leaders of Mecca.
The Moslems eventually destroy the idols of Kaaba and the holy place is dedicated to the worship of a monotheistic god. Anthony Quinn and Irene Papas star in this epic Arab film classic that was nearly seven years in the making and filmed in two separate versions with a cast of thousands. Produced and Directed by Moustapha Akkad (Lion of the Desert), The Message remains the most powerful and acclaimed film ever made about the birth of Islam.
