A real masterpiece !
3 December 2015 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

What can someone say about this movie ?... It is a "guide" for what a man can become, when he has money for his "god".. Also, shows the ultimate misery he face when he realize that all the money of the world can not give some "happiness " to him...

Raul is really a master in this movie... As a Greek by myself, it is as if I can SEE ALIVE "our Onassis", living his drama again. Passion and sadness, money and lust, all together mixed in a wonderful way.. You can actually feel the old Onassis, with all his life "painted" on his face, in last scenes, fallen, broken apart and almost dead...

A must film, for every person who loves great acting ~
