Romeo and Juliet in war-torn Middle East.
4 March 1999 | by (Pennsylvania, USA) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent movie whose love scenes are more richly created by the real life romance of Adrian Pasdar and Cecilia Peck. Pasdar actually went through the Israel's rigorous military boot camp to perfect his character.
