A very fine film about the Turkish Harem. In the 16th century the Turkish city of Istanbul was ruled by Suleyman the Magnificent. The center of his power was Topkapi Palace – at the heart of which was the harem. Into it came hundreds of women from all over the empire and beyond. It was a place where sex could equal power. This documentary tells the story of how some of these women came to play a pivotal role in running the world’s largest empire from inside the mysterious and sometimes violent world of the Harem.
Probably staged films of ladies pretending to be part of an “Arab” harem. The three ladies at the end appear to be from the West.
