Could have been interesting but.....
21 March 1999 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

At times I found this film frustrating as it laboured on instead of telling an interesting story. It was only in the last reel when the camera gets close to the central character, Magna, that an attachment was created by audience and filmmaker. If only the film began on this note and carried it through the sometimes silly disposition of dialogue and acting. Great soundtrack.
