A wonderful film
26 March 2000 | by (Barcelona,Spain) – See all my reviews

Maybe have seen this version 50 times and I continue without getting tired. Always encounter some new detail. Above all is Ian Richardson, S.H., that embroiders the paper. The sir Hugo scene with the girl in the swamp, and the horse being in death agony is memorable. As much the decorations as the exterior are magnificent. For everything it and more I give him a 10.

Until the next one.
