A Thousand and One Nights

Story

  • This work was made as an attempt to ensure worldwide acceptance of a major animated work. A total of 60,000 staff was hired and 70,000 motion pictures used to make this film. The main character looked like the French actor, Jean Paul Belmond, and most of the music was rock music, destined to attract attention in the world market. This attempt, however, left some lessons to be learned. While the pictures and music were highly appreciated, the film itself was not well received because of the way in which the main character was portrayed, such as eating pork and drinking wine despite being a Muslim. It showed us that in order to be successful in the world market, we must understand cultural diversity and its background.
