Hill's direction, solid in the intimate dramatic scenes, is as good in crowd shots which rep the major external events.

The film features a towering performance by Max von Sydow ... although it's Jocelyne LaGarde who nabbed the most praise for her delightful turn.

[Hill] fights a losing battle to keep the sprawling story in check but, aided by his cast, imbues the piece with the stormy passion that this mammoth production requires.
