With such blinding star power, it's a pity this film was not better edited. The people are beautiful, the clothing are beautiful, the many European locales are gorgeous. The acting is really worth watching -- the expressions and gestures, but more than that, how the actors interact with each other. That's a sign of good acting -- everyone is 'in the scene,' reacting to the situation, not just waiting like a wooden marionette until its turn to deliver the next line.
The way the movie was edited and the plot may merit one star when combined. Such a terrible waste of money and effort. A sad last movie for Audrey Hepburn's career. And why did Ben Gazzara get such a large role? Of the many stars in this movie, he was, perhaps not the most minor, but certainly second-rank to the likes of Audrey Hepburn, James Mason, Omar Sharif, Irene Pappa, Romy Schneider (looking soooo gorgeous), Gert Froebe... Gazzara was more in the league of Michele Philips. Too bad, so sad.
The Paramount DVD from Great Britain (not available in the U.S. yet) is an above average anamorphic 1.85 transfer.
Full star cast, very 80's genre, but also extremely good. I got the VHS, because I can't stand DVDs. Probably the DVD, if available, would be clearer. Worth buying, because it's worth watching over and over.
I don't want to give away the plot, so won't comment on it.
