Obsession with Feet
12 December 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

It's not surprising that DeMille would make a film with this title because he had an obsession with women's feet.

Just by looking at the film you can see the amount of money that he must have spent on costumes, sets, research and paying attention to detail. The one thing it lacked was human warmth.
