Great scenery, terrible plot
30 January 2003 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Even as a fan of Donald Sinden, this is only an OK offering. The most enjoyable part has to be the amazing locations, set in Libya. The original story was obviously a long novel that was a real struggle to compress into a script
