Complex, fascinating story and good theme music
25 March 2001 | by katlewhickSee all my reviews

I would love to see this film again. It was fascinating and unique, but the involved story needed more than one viewing. The music, Sayon Dola impressed me and I bought the single. Now it has been recorded by Russell Watson on his CD The Voice.
