Excellent movie.
20 November 1999 | by canto-3See all my reviews

I liked this movie. It was very well done and the director was awesome. This history can serve of an example to everybody. Sorry for my terrible English, but this movie was very good. The actuation of the actors was great. I recommend it to the lovers.
