The magic is away
Considered in France Jacques Becker's worst film,the only one that has nothing to recommend it.The story is not very well told ,which is a shame for a very famous Arabian story.Walt Disney did a whole lot better with his Aladdin.Anyway,the man who could achieve such a task in France had not yet made any movie at the time:of course it was Jacques Demy who worked wonders with "Peau d'Ane" and "the pied piper".

It was to be Becker's only color movie (he was to experiment wide screen in "Le Trou" with stunning results)and it's a pity that it was not ,say,"Casque D'or". Fernandel was too old to be a credible Ali.And the woman's lib will moan and groan when they see him on his donkey,followed by his wife who runs behind him.
