A nice telenovela scrip
10 January 2019 | by ersbelSee all my reviews

This is a nice telenovela script. Moroccan soap compressed for a featured film. And that compression makes the script even better.

Only the acting is execrable. Apart from Omar Sharif whose part shouldn't have been in the final draft.

And to add injury, the cheap ending is making things even worse.
