Trivia

This was a long cherished project for David Lean. He was due to commence filming on 1991 but he fell ill and died soon afterwards. It is probably one of the most celebrated scripts never to be filmed, and the cast would have included Dennis Quaid, Isabella Rosselini, Liam Neeson and George Corraface, with possible involvement by Peter O'Toole, Paul Scofield and Marlon Brando.

A great saga but you will survive if you don't see it!
13 August 1999 | by cathy-39See all my reviews

A saga, a silver mine, lots of horses and guns, an Ennio Morricone's score, an incredible cast...

It's hard to say something bad about this TV-serie, it has suspense, political drama, love, greed, action, but in the end, after all these hours I've spent to watch and love these characters, nothing really stays with me, something is lacking. It's 309 minutes well spend but it stops so brutally that I fell cheated. All that for that?

It is surely a "must see" for any Colin Firth's fan, but nothing that will stop the Earth turning!
