Clear-sighted focus on an entrepreneurs-family
24 July 2000 | by amikus2000See all my reviews

Function, effectivity and immorality are shown. So dictators can succeed worldwide as they did. This project was not shown in cinema to show it more spectators! Burt Lancaster and Julie Christie play the capital of the family, swiss, austrian and german stars surround them and give thoughtful action, instead of explosions and direct murders. A must for every high-schooler.
