Eva, the beautiful young woman is seen reading in a idyllic country setting as the story begins. Tudor, the wealthy owner of a mill in the vicinity, happens to pass by; he is taken with Eva, whose radiance attracts him. He tells her that he will make her fall in love with him, no matter what if they ever meet again. Eva, an impoverished girl, together with her mother and sister, have been living with their uncle Alphonse. This man has forced himself on Eva's sister. Not wanting to suffer the same fate, she runs away and becomes Tudor's lover.
The plot thickens. Tudor must leave for America, where he has been called to go to an ailing mother. Alphonse discovers Tudor has sold his estate as he probably will not be returning. Thinking he can now has his own way with Eva, he tries to force her into having sex with him, but Eva proves she can handle him, beating him to a pulp and rendering him invalid for life! At this point, another figure enters Eva's life. It is Oswald, a rich noble man. He marries Eva and gives her a luxurious life. One day, while riding together, Eva spots Tudor on his horse. She follows him to another idyllic place where they resume their torrid love affair.
Unfortunately, Tudor is never around for much. He will keep turning on, and disappearing after he gets satisfaction in the bedroom. To make matters worse, Tudor is wounded on his left arm, after an assassination attempt. He might lose his arm, but thanks to German technology, he gets to keep it. What's more, later on, on one of his reappearances, we see him without a shirt, and lo and behold, his arm is perfect, as though a miracle had occurred after his crying like a baby because of the possibility of the amputation. For all practical purposes it is as though nothing ever happened to that arm!
Directed by Adrian Popovici, a Romanian director, and written for the screen by Steve Attridge and Radu Petrescu-Aneste, this is a film that defies credibility. Evidently, some 21 contributors to this forum have deemed it worthy of a 10 rating, which does not sound right. What does not make sense is to find actors of the stature of Vanessa and Corin Redgrave, Michael Ironside and Patrick Bergin involved in this movie.
