What a Wonderful Story.
28 July 2015 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

What a wonderful passionate story. When it comes right down to it, family is all we truly have forever. Family should never give up on each other no matter how many years have passed since you last spoke with each other or what the circumstances were that drove you apart. This story is very easy to follow and the sub-titles were very cleverly placed as not to be a distraction. The acting is superb with some incredible Hungarian folk dancing that is truly enjoyable to watch. I love movies with happy endings that leave you feeling satisfied and The Maiden Danced To Death is no exception to this rule. I know you will enjoy watching this story as much as I did. Gary Michael Willens/Los Angeles
