The Best Ever, 15 May 2008
Author: holmstrom from Anchorage, Alask

What a great portrayal! Bravo to Bo Svenson for his realistic creature. Finally, someone has played the damned story of this unfortunate from the book. What a wonderful job of acting. The scene with the mirror: "Who's hand, please?" Or when Svenson says, "I cry," in almost bewilderment that he is able to even do so ... priceless acting. I remember watching this on TV and being in tears at the plight of the terrible tragedy of this child-like giant through no fault of his own. No other cinematic telling of the Shelley classic has ever even come close. I remember that the acting across the board was excellent, but Svenson was simply incredible.

If this is available anywhere, I'd sure like to have a copy.
