I agree with previous comment
29 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I agree with the previous comment. When the miniseries aired, I was dating an Indian girl, and with her whole family we would watch every episode. I read the book years later, and was impressed at how accurately the miniseries followed the book. When it came out on video, it had been years since I saw the original, but I knew something was missing. I hope it is re-released in its entire length.

While it is hard to believe Amy Irving as an Indian princess, the acting is superb, the sets are magnificent and the camera work captures it all. This set a standard for TV-miniseries that has never been equaled.
