Beautifully Well Made
7 April 2002 | by (Chgo, USA) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie like Ben Hur, King of Kings, I must say though I'm one of those fans that believe music can make or break a movie. Miklos Rozsa's scoring of his basic love theme is so beautiful like his music in the above mentioned two movies, it kept me drawn to it, a bit long but well worth it, with stars like Pier Angeli, Stewart Granger and Stanley Baker were the familiar faces in the Italian made movie.

I do recommend seeing it.
