Haunting Suttee Ceremony
1 March 2011 | by (Cyprus) – See all my reviews

This mini series was an unexpected eye candy one summer, for the lazy Sunday afternoons when we didn't expect something special to be broadcasted.

I was fascinated with the fairytale-like story and the wind of adventure blown into it. Amy Irving was (as always) likable but I found Ben Cross too stoic and a bit cold. Omar Sharif brought an air of nobleness to an otherwise cruel environment.

The most breathtaking scene was the suttee ceremony that haunted me for weeks after. Even though I know now that some women did it voluntary, it is the cruelest custom I ever heard...
