A Technical Advance by DeMille
5 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Although not a gripping storyline, DeMille raises eyebrows by use of double imagery, lighting, colour and special effects to demonstrate the psychological experiences of the protagonist and antagonist. Apart from its technical merit, there is nothing in the film from a literary or entertaining perspective.
