Possibly the worst Byron film ever made.
10 August 2000 | by esler99See all my reviews

A highly pretentious look at the last days of Byron in Greece. Full of highly unlikely and over the top meaningful conversations about life, incest, Greeks and all that that.

A dark film which pretends to be far more than it is. I recommend you miss it with extreme prejudice.
