One of five film versions of this story- Negri superb

This property has been filmed five times, four under its own title and one under another. This is a good version, very tightly directed by Stiller with a stellar Negri performance (pairing this with her BARBED WIRE would make a stunning double feature). She looks remarkably like actress Karen Allen. Her talent is amazing- she is the subtlest of actresses and deals in nuances rather than gesture. She builds this role carefully by increments and walks away with the film. The rest of the cast is serviceable. The cinematography and editing were worthy of award consideration in addition to the direction and her performance. Grapevine Video has a quite good print (for them) available on video. Negri is never what one expects but she is always a revelation.
