Deep, moody and delightful!
12 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't know when I first encountered this excellent film. Over the years I've been able to buy two VHS copies, but DVDs have proved elusive.

John Hurt and Judi Bowker are both personal favorites and they act well together. She's one of those underrated actresses that's little known.

In "Brother Sun, Sister Moon" she delivers a wonderful performance as Clare. I totally disliked "Clash of the Titans" in spite of her inclusion in the cast.

In "East of Elephant Rock" she delivers another excellent performance in a totally different role.

Yes, it's another film without heroes, but those are sometimes the best, even if they are the most difficult to watch.
