The film "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time": the actors and plot of the cult film adaptation of a computer game
This film was shot under rather harsh conditions. The actors and the entire crew had a very hard time, because the air temperature never fell below 35 degrees. This and other interesting facts will be discussed in the article below.
By the way, the actors of "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time" were carefully chosen, and thanks to this film another Hollywood star was lit up - Gillenhol, who played Prince Dastan.
It so happened that little Dastan was born and grew up in poverty. The street and all its cruelty raised and taught the boy to survive in any conditions. He was brave and selfless when his best friend was caught stealing apples. Dastan was not afraid to repel the king’s guards and, thanks to his “audacity”, attracted the attention of Sharaman himself.The king saw a huge potential in the boy and decided to raise this youngster himself, but already a real man inside.
So the guy grew up, side by side with the king's sons. Sharaman taught him wisdom and nobility, which helped him to become a strong young warrior who would do anything for his adoptive father.
One day, Dastan (actor Jake Gyllenhaal) goes hiking in the quiet city of Alamut, where, according to reports, the weapons of the enemies of Persia are hidden. But in the end it turned out that this city keeps a much greater secret, which is hidden behind seven castles. Dastan manages to seize the secret blade, which opens the door to the Sands of Time, but at this time there is a plot, and the king is meanly killed. It all comes down to the fact that Dastan is guilty of the death of his father, and therefore he has to flee, taking with her the beautiful princess Alamut - Tamina.

One of them was Ben Kingsley, who played the role of Nizam - the brother of King Sharaman and uncle Dastan. Bruckheimer notes that if an actor of this caliber participates in the project, the picture is doomed to success. By the way, it turned out that way.
