Captivating songs and interesting camerawork
3 March 2000 | by (Trivandrum, Kerala, India) – See all my reviews

I saw this film some 20 years ago. Yet I rate it as an unusually interesting film 20 years later because of the marvellous songs and the interesting use of modern shots of the skyscrapers at the beginning of the film. While the film is true to Harriet Beecher Stowe's story, the director's implicit comparison of the past and present America (skyscraper skyline shown during the credits) is interesting. Eartha Kitt's song at the end is unforgettable. The film is distinctly European (the director is Hungarian) in style and the story and songs could merit a re-release. Herbert Lom is notable among the actors.
