Filmed in Turkey, “Arabian Nights” is a wonderful story, with exotic locations and impressive production values. Some parents may be leery of a film featuring magic and an evil-looking genie, but these are well-constructed parables, each containing a moral. The good vs. evil yarns contain lessons concerning the potency of love, the destructiveness of greed, facing responsibility, and finding happiness being more important than gaining power. Again, what’s so wonderful about this presentation is the storytelling. It may well instill a desire in youngsters to read books rather than just be transfixed by video games.
