Terrific movie about how the evils of men turn beauty into ugliness
19 January 2004 | by (Hamilton, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this movie as a child and not really understanding it until years later when the transformation from something beutiful to something ugly happened as Sarrazin was exposed to all the evils and negativity of his creatr and others.

An excellent movie for anyone wanting to know just what goes wrong on this planet...........
