An extraordinary movie
7 February 2001 | by (Miami, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is simply an extraordinary movie. After watching One Against the Wind, I wish to recommend it to everyone with a preference for true classics. This film is a jewel. Judy Davis performance as Countess Mary Lindell is unique. It's a real life story and it is timeless. It will touch your heart forever.
