In an ifilm exclusive report, Iran historian has discussed the fake picture that ‘Kingdom of Heaven’ director depicts out of Saladin.
In a series of programs called Cinema VS History hosted by ifilm, Iran veteran historian Khosrow Motazed sheds light on the reality behind anti-Iran films produced by Hollywood.
The director of the movie has used historical documents to depict the events of the movie but, in fact, he has tried to create harsh picture out of Muslims and Saladin.
In some locations Saladin, who was a very kind and nice man, is introduced as a commander who is a brutal killer and a cruel butcher.
Produced by 21st Century Fox Company in 2005, ‘Kingdom of Heaven’ is based on a series of religious wars between Christians and Muslims known as Crusades.
Ridley Scott, the director of the movie, has made the flick based on a real historical story to show his interest in rebuilding history.
Balian of Ibelin the commander of Christian forces in Jerusalem is the main character of the story who is defeated by Ayyubid Muslim Sultan, Saladin, the commander of Muslim Army.
They siege the city and Balian of Ibelin accepts to end the battle and makes piece with Saladin.
