    beautifuly shot but the female character is so one dimensional- she is just a temptress--even almost in the bibical sense of how so many depict women as the seducers of poor innocent men. And she pays the price of course by being raped. All this could be acceptable her relentless character grew and became more real--more human-but she just remains the blond temptress.a one dimensional beautifuly shot but the female character is so one dimensional- she is just a temptress--even almost in the bibical sense of how so many depict women as the seducers of poor innocent men.

    Easy on the eye but light on originality.
  3. A misguided tale of sentimental education.
