A beautiful, romantic, passionate movie...a movie that I would really love to see again...
2 February 2004 | by (San Diego, CA) – See all my reviews

I saw this beautiful romantic movie for the first time when I was young teen. This movie had such an impact on me and has made me a James Farentino fan ever since. I've been wanting to see it again and have been looking for it for the past 30 years.
