I like this story...
16 September 1999 | by (D'dorf, Germany) – See all my reviews



I know, it is for sure not Kazan's best film, it might be a bit lengthy. But if you like stories of people getting away from their former well-settled lives because they discover some truths about themselves, then you should definitely go and watch it. Faye Dunaway playing Gwen who makes Eddie (Kirk Douglas) change his way is simply stunning in her appearance.

Some of you will definitely think: "Oh god, if only this happened to me..!" (Read the book, I say..!)

I give it a 10, for the story which is, on the long run, the important thing.
