Great Film, Touches Deep Human Issues
25 September 2002 | by talas1See all my reviews

A Great Film, the best by Roeg, deals with heavy issues and shows how beautiful the human spirit can be in the midst of pain..also how everyone is strong and weak. People both look horrible and beautiful and show themselves to be like us.
