great mini-series
1 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this mini-series and in my opinion it ranks right up there with the Thornbirds. I think it would be a hit if it came out on DVD. Lesley Ann Warren was superb as Marja. With her beauty and high class demeanor she adds another dimension to the character. Marc Singer was also great casting as Ross. He brought a sense of vulnerability and passion to the role of the gangster. And what better choice for Mike than David Dukes who conveyed the qualities of integrity and idealism. The characters played off one another beautifully and created an nostalgic atmosphere of real romance and heartfelt love. In this era of graphic sexuality I find it ironic that I would find a movie about a prostitute to be such a sensational love story but I do.
