I guess it was just pure luck that I caught an airing of this on the USA TV network back in the early 80's. But have never heard a word about this movie since! It was a marvelous, beautiful film and some of Vangelis' best soundtrack work. If it wasn't for the ONE other comment on this page, I would start to begin to think that I "dreamt" seeing this!
Why has this movie disappeared? How can something like this be so totally forgotten?
Please, may the powers that be reconsider the release of this on DVD...or at least another broadcast on TV. I can't imagine that filming animals was an easy endeavor, so let's give this director some credit where credit is due, and at least let people see it.
