Easily one of my top five movies of all time.
6 July 2003 | by (Richmond, Virginia) – See all my reviews

Every actor and actress delivered powerful performances, especially Peter Firth and Marjoe Gortner. It was a stirring, disturbing plot that let you see the affect on people by someone who truly does not care for people or even himself. In fact he cares for nothing in the world. I would recommend it to anyone. If someone would get this movie on video, many more people could enjoy this work of art.
