Message, The: The Story Of Islam
Remastered in stunning high-definition, Anthony Quinn and Irene Papas star in this sweeping epic about the birth of the Islamic faith.
In 7th century Mecca, powerful leaders are in conflict with Mohammad who attacks the many injustices their way of life produces - slavery, drunkenness and cruelty. Mohammad claims to have seen a vision of the Angel Gabriel and calls to the people of Mecca to worship one God only.
After a revelation from God, Mohammad agrees to take up arms against Mecca and leads a group of inexperienced Muslim troops to victory at the Wells of Badr. However, in the wake of their subsequent defeat at the Battle of Uhud, Mohammad and his followers accept a ten-year truce, allowing them to continue spreading the word of God. Mohammad is the prophet... The Messenger of God.
