  1. The charisma and hard work by his two leads allows Boorman to succeed beyond all expectations.

    Any social good the film might do gets lost in a soupy morass of histrionics, clumsy storytelling, overripe dialogue, and rampant didacticism.

    An unquestionably sincere but dramatically stillborn outing by veteran John Boorman.
