24 April 2000 | Enrique
| Magnificent Italian mini-series capturing the scope and flavour of the Emilio Salgari epic.
Emilio Salgari is a famous non-English language adventure novelist of the Dumas/Anthony Hope/Rafael Sabatini school. The Sandokan books is one of his great series. This Italian mini-series, which I watched twice dubbed in Spanish, captures the entire scope and flavour of the first and best books of the Sandokan saga. It has pirates, tiger hunts, intrigue, escapes, loyalty, treachery, and, of course, a great romance. Sandokan and Yáñez and the lady Marianne and all other characters are featured. It is sad that the Salgari books have never been translated to English and that, indirectly because of this, this great mini-series has probably not been shown in American television nor transferred to video. I still hope some day to see it collected.

Its is over 4.5 hours long and spell-binding.
