The absolute greatest work of art I have ever seen...
9 July 2000 | by brady28-2See all my reviews

Words can not even begin to explain the power of this brilliant film. The performances are so impacting they actually leave you in tears. If you liked "On the Wings of a Dove" and "Lawrance of Arabia" then you'll love this epic tale of the personal flaus and human emotion that some may never be able to comprehend. It is the best thing in film history to come along since "The Remains of the Day". Don't ever pass this film by. However, don't watch it too much. That's how fragile it's beauty is. If it is tampered with, it could fall apart just like that.
