Good story but ruined...
28 November 2000 | by (Darmstadt, Germany) – See all my reviews

The play was pretty good to watch. However, having so many people in the chorus was very annoying. So many voices suddenly pipe in and take away from all the drama of the story, and make it just look foolish. If this chorus wasn't there, I feel the film would have been very good. Regardless of the spartan set they used.
