Schaffner`s finishing touch.And he finishes off in style.
8 July 2000 | by (Tromsø,Norway) – See all my reviews

This film is good,but not Schaffner`s best. My favourite is Papillon and Patton,but this is a sad and very nice film. Kris Kristoffersen is good in this movie and really makes a difference. I am going to miss Schaffner and this is his last film.

A good film by a great director! 7,5/10
