Inferior redo of original Jon Hall spectacle; state of art effects for 1970s.

a terrible remake; a strong wind should have blown this production away before a foot of film was shot.

What happened? Jan Troell is normally such a magnificent director. This is one slow moving film. Mia Farrow stinks, the rest of the cast isn?t much better. Visually it is quite beautiful, and technically speaking it is fine, but dramatically it is greatly lacking.
