Bacall-Chamberlain in a rather well-made saga.
17 July 2001 | by lionel.willoquetSee all my reviews

The life of a rich American heiress, whose fabulous fortune poses an obstacle to happiness. This saga, devoted to the heartache of an overly wealthy woman, provides a good opportunity to savour some fine actors.
