A Hollywood movie
18 April 2002 | by (DK) – See all my reviews

Green Fire is a Hollywood movie (with all what it means) One cant imagine a film like this be made any other places. There is not a big plot, not spectacular actors-performances, but you stil find you enjoy. Grace Kelly is as always what dreams are made of, and a real Hollywood actors like Granger and Douglas know how to make a boy-film. Green Fire is a film you will love on a raining sunday afternoon.
