2.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful film, muddy print. March 8, 2008
This was a film I saw when it was originally released and I was swept away (no pun intended). I have waited patiently for a DVD release but was quite dissapointed in the quality of this print. It looks like a TV recording with awful sound.
The film has a look and feel that is firmly anchored in the 70's but I don't think most Franco Nero fans will mind. The heroine (Shimkus) is trapped in the stultifying atmosphere of an English parrish house until a chance encounter with a bohemian couple and a gypsy on horseback sets her free.

I obtained this movie because Joanna Shimkus, the last wife of Sydney Poitier, starred in it and I was curious about knowing who she was and what was her appeal to Mr. Poitier. The movie started rather slowly so I almost gave up on it even though Ms. Shimkus is a very strikingly beautiful creature. It is worth getting this movie just to view the charisma of Ms. Shimkus. But, the story eventually becomes more active and interesting. It's about the sexual mores in conflict in 1920's England. It's quite interesting actually if you can just "stay with it" until about the middle of the movie. Recommended for Ms. Shimkus and the story as it develops slowly. boland7214@aol

4.0 out of 5 stars A Lost Classic Found January 23, 2008
By Johnsy
This is an excellent movie, that in its day was somewhat of an "art house" film, but is no less impressive now after finally being released in DVD form. This motion picture is filled with beautiful scenes and credible characters, all telling an enduring, timeless story. It is a visual treat and despite its ultimate seriousness, is filled with subtle humor. But judge for yourself.
