A solid good yarn.
5 June 2000 | by rother-2See all my reviews

A solid good yarn.A beautifully multilevel piece of drama. Nigel Hawthorne is excellent. Its about medicine,about relationship,about international politic and about healing. There are so many levels in this TV film ,that anytime you think you got an handle on it.This film surprises you again. I love it. Very good brain food.
