For a TV movie...
11 January 2004 | by (birmingham, al) – See all my reviews

it was actually pretty good. David Carradine brought forth a believable effort and I would have to rank it among his best performances. It was a shame it wasn't a feature film production because Gauguin is a fascinating character and Carradine's work would have showcased.
