A beguiling piece of cinematic artisitry
26 March 2000 | by straylightSee all my reviews

I saw this film at its premiere in london and was astounded by the beauty of the photography. It looks fabulous and it is clear to see why Branagh and McGann were inticed into roles in the picture. It is an art-house epic and proves that cinema does not have to be high budget to devastate. Andrew Dickinson pulls off a fine debut as a young lad in the trenches and the costumes in general are superb.
