A little dated, but we romantics don't care., 4 May 2006
Author: salsa89 from Australia

I saw Leopard in the snow in 1978 as an 18 yr old and was lucky enough to purchase a copy of the book with the movie pictures in the middle. I have re-read the book countless times in the last 28 years, Helen and Dominic are like old friends to me. Last month on a whim I put Leopard in the Snow into eBay and there it was available on DVD and now I have it in my hot little hands after 28 years.

And after 28 years the movie was just as I remembered. Heart-warming, romantic and with terrible hair and clothes. But who cares! This is a movie you'll either love or hate and if you loved the innocence of 1960/1970's Mills & Boon books, chances are you'll love Leopard in the Snow.
