When I was going to see this film, I feared a little bit that this would have too much of a western atmosphere. I decided to watch this because the story seemed very interesting. Director Uli Edel did a very good job directing this. Although this is a TV-movie, and I assume the budget wasn't that big, Uli Edel made a very impressive film. I enjoyed this film a lot. Also the acting was very good. The music is excellent. I recommend this film to everyone. Also to people who generally don't like westerns. This is an amazing film, with excellent acting, beautiful cinematography, beautiful music and a great, touching story! Don't miss this film, it's beautiful!
