SINS- This Sins is Good for the Soul ****, 12 February 2007
Author: edwagreen from United States

Fabulous made for television movie of 1986 with Joan Collins starring as a woman who survived the Nazi horror in France only to come face to face with more brutality in the United States years later.

With a terrific supporting cast, the story traces Ms. Collins from a young girl who loses a younger sister and her parents in the Nazi horror and finds her brother, very well played by Timothy Dalton in a catatonic state.

In America, they find wealth along the way with all its glamor. Nevertheless, she makes enemies with a number of people who swear vengeance against her. Leading the pact is Steven Berkoff in another absolutely brilliant performance as her Nazi tormentor, who killed her mother and is sentenced to life in prison. Due to his connections, he is released from prison only to pursue Collins and Dalton, planning financial ruin for them both. His only opposition is when 2 of the conspirators want her death instead.

For the ladies, there are plenty of gorgeous fashions as Collins and Dalton lead a fashion magazine.

There is plenty of action along the way.

Neil Dickson is highly effective as Hubert, who loved Collins after the war only to be usurped by his father, a rather engaging but vicious Jean Pierre Aumont.

A very highly recommended mini-series. "Sins" was nominated for best mini-series of 1986 but lost the Emmy to "Peter The Great." We really need to examine that.
