Richard Abel, in his history of French cinema of this period, positions Sables firmly in a wave of films made at this time in the exotic locations of North Africa and the French colonies. Sables was one of a series made by French filmmakers at this time Toussaint’s Inch’Allah, Luitz-Morat’s Le sang d’Allah (Allah’s blood) and Hugon’s Yasima
Sables fits into this pattern with a melodramatic plot that uses the Tunisian desert as its background adding mystery and the unknown.
The cast included the director's wife at the time Nadia Sibirskaïa who played a similar role for him in Menilmontant.
