Sadly over looked film..
27 September 2002 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

Road to Salina is a sadly over looked film that has allot of what people can enjoy in a movie. Of course you have to be into the whole open idea about the film's theme of a suggestive incest. From the start there is a tension set in the film (thanks to Barbet Schroeder)that will hold your attention. Many people wish to see Rita Hayworth's last film. If you get a chance to watch it be sure you are in the mood (70's....) to give it time to build to the climax... you might be amused with the ending.
