6 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Larry VanDeSande VINE VOICE on March 17, 2006
But the English language version is an involving film with a starry cast -- Kenneth Branaugh, William Hurt, Madeline Stowe, Robert Loggia, Gwyneth Paltrow's mother and the guy that played Doogie Howser.

It's the 1930ish story about wealthy Boston tycoon Hurt wanting someone to do his wife (Stowe) so she can get pregnant (Hurt apparently can't perform). Doogie gets selected from an audition and gets on with it -- then falls in love with the tycoon's wife.

Lots of turbulence and silly drama follow including a couple deaths, miscarriages and some other bad stuff. Hurt isn't very convincing as a weepy hubby and Branaugh plays a priest who ends up like the one in "Thorn Birds" except he doesn't show his behind. When confronted by his elder he saves himself from exile to the Vatican with some fancy talking.

The film ends well with absolution for some of the characters. This is high grade soap opera and mainly a chick flick. It's worth a night's entertainment but I wouldn't bother buying a German-language release even if it was subtitled. Wait around for an English release or wait for it to show up on one of your cable channels.
