In Zeffirelli's visually beautiful tale, the hero is perceived as a prototype hippie, and so the music is by Donovan.
Way overwrought Zeffirelli work, pretty much lost since its debut in 1973.
The most serious problem with this film is its softness, that sentimentality Zeffirelli is often accused of.
It is one of the most beautiful films I have ever seen. Just about any frame of the film, blown up, could make a beautiful poster for the film.
beautiful and nicely framed photography from northern Italy...not enough to overcome an inane script, inept acting, and Donovan's syrupy music
