It's easy to see how this military adventure has become a cult favorite, with its oddball wit and an elegant simplicity to what was likely underfunded stunt work.
[font=Century Gothic]"White Sun of the Desert" starts around 1920 in Central Asia, with Sukhov(Anatoli Kuznetsov), dreaming of returning to his darling Katerina(Galina Luchai), chancing across Said(Spartak Mishulin), buried up to his head in the sand, and promptly digs him out. Said then accompanies him to where he meets up with some Soviet troops who have just been in a battle with the feared bandit Abdullah(Kakhi Kavsadze) who fled before he could he could kill his harem. The troops are off in pursuit, leaving the wives in Sukhov's charge along with young Petrukha(Nikolai Godovikov).[/font]

[font=Century Gothic]"White Sun of the Desert" is a rousing, fun, and old fashioned adventure film that never takes itself too seriously. There are a couple of questions concerning the Soviet intent to civilize but Said does seem like a decent sort of chap, so I'll look the other way. And I can definitely accept any anti-harem position that coincides with women being liberated.[/font]
