Enthralling & engaging dramatic love story
17 October 1999 | by (Dundee, Scotland) – See all my reviews

This engaging dramatic love story was my first taste of the beautiful & captivating Cherie Lunghi. A film which tugs at the heart strings of the viewer and takes them from the thrill & excitement of love to it's deceit and betrayal. This enthralling 2-part movie has kept me returning to view it over 2 decades and I never tire of watching it.

Recommended as an excellent introduction to the charms of Miss Lunghi, with notable performances of Jonathan Pryce and Carmen du Sautoy.
