Very solid ,but has good points.
15 October 2007 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

The sad truth again and, again and, again,But this film was not the worst television program in years.But the acting is poor ,but this time this is not the actors mistake ,cause the creators originally wanted to make a mini-series,now you can understand what happened really.The film has all the elements of it's own type:love ,power,revenge.The character played by Tony Curtis is enough realistic to understand what too much of money can create about a NORMAL-personality.Finally the "values" which-ones the creators wanted to make visible ,are there in the film,what is sad but true for those want to see more Christian values on the screen.But maybe in the little horse scene near to the end,when the less rich ,but true lover character accept something to make things better.
