Black Gold Trailer. Jean-Jacques Annaud‘s Black Gold (2011) international movie trailer stars Tahar Rahim, Mark Strong, Antonio Banderas, Freida Pinto, and Riz Ahmed. Black Gold‘s plot synopsis: based on Hans Reusch’s South of the Heart: A Novel of Modern Arabia, “Set in the 1930s Arab states at the dawn of the oil boom, the story centers on a young Arab prince torn between allegiance to his conservative father and modern, liberal father-in-law.”
This looks good but it is very strange seeing Antonio Banderas speaking with a spanish accent yet playing someone from Saudi Arabia. It was strange in The 13th Warrior and it is strange here.
The official description of the cast and plot:
Casting: Tahar Rahim, after his award-winning, breakthrough performance inJacques Audiard’s award winning “Un Prophete,” will play the lead role of Prince Auda in “Black Gold”, a hero torn between two fathers, two loves, two choices, one destiny.

Frieda Pinto (“Slumdog Millionaire”; “Miral”) plays Princess Lallah, the daughter of Nessib and future wife of Auda.
