First film as a producer for Norma Heyman. Heyman had tried for years to get this movie made ever since she first read the novel back in the early 1970s. Heyman was turned down by the majority of Hollywood film studios. Proper development on the film began when, after a chance meeting with actor Richard Gere at a New York restaurant, Gere was sent the script, and showed interested in doing the film. See more »
Intriguing music and lighting choices with some good camera movement and angles keep this film relatively interesting on an audio and visual level. However, they do not compensate for the film having quite a limited story of just a lightly developed romance during political unrest. There are political themes and morality issues in it, however they are not too well explained. It is also far too slowly paced, dragging between the story action. It is not a bad film though, and it is arguably interesting to watch however it misses the mark for greatness. Despite Caine and Hoskins receiving BAFTA nominations for their roles, it is Gere who delivers the most effectively.
