Superb visit to Old Jerusalem.
6 June 1999 | by (Maryland, USA) – See all my reviews

The acting, directing, editing and script are excellent. Cinematography is brilliant. A good treatment of greed, young love (without the obligatory sex scenes), class and cultural differences, the film's chase sequences are a brilliant kaleidescope of Old Jerusalem. It is difficult to believe that a visit there could be as visually rich as watching this film.

It is a relief to see a romantic young couple not grabbing for sex but rather more interested in each other's personalities and cultural differences. Their youth and innocence contrast strongly with the cadaverous presence of Peter O'Toole, whom greed has transformed into a caricature of human form, unalive to the vitality and beauty around him.
