Old story, different setting
13 November 2007 | by gerry1019See all my reviews

Stanley Baker plays a rich Spanish land owner in what is about turn of century (1900) Andalucia. He has a relationship with the title character played by Sarah Miles which has not quite reached the engagement stage.

He decides to ask his son to visit. His son is in a seminary just about to become a priest. Baker want's to consult his son about the lady.

One hardly needs to give a spoiler warning since anyone watching the beginning of the movie will see a story that has been filmed many times before with pretty obvious developments to come. The film is never boring, sticks in a couple of dream sequences and rolls on to it's not wholly unexpected conclusion.

The version I saw was on a deleted Canadian tape and ran 88 mins.
