Storyline

In June of 1866, while in Washington to pursue reparations from Congress for property losses during the Gold Rush, Swiss-born John Sutter sits for a portrait that still hangs in Solothurn. As Frank Buchser paints, Sutter relates his life story: his childhood, apprenticeship, early marriage, business failures, and departure to America, alone, in the late 1830s. He establishes his business empire in what becomes Sacramento, losing out again when gold is discovered at a mill he's building, his lands to be trampled by the world rushing in. Nearly 20 years later, reunited with his wife and living in New York, dignified and without regrets, he futilely lobbies Congress. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

no good
13 December 2003 | by (Basel) – See all my reviews

After reading the book (L'or) several years ago, I had some expectations. But mostly it's just an awful boring conversation between the old General Sutter and a painter about the General's life. It doesn't even come close to show the real tragedy that happened and Sutter's character remains unknown. Nothing more to comment because there simply ISN'T more.. Two thumbs down.
