who said it could not be filmed?
11 October 2002 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a magic piece of work. I am sure if Becket could see it, he would be justly happy of the performances and how it was laid onto celluloid. For those unfamiliar with it, there are no filmic landscapes or action, just the action and landscape of life.
