it was great, but I am disappointed they do not release the extended version, I would have rated that 100 out of 10.....still waiting for the extended version to be released, and I believe I am not the only one :)
I am a lover of good stories and this "old school" love story should be a classic. Great actors, great acting, exceptional sets and wardrobe, what a shame to condense this movie to just 4 hours, it should be re released as a long version. May be "they" think it might not work, I will give you some examples, Lord of the rings, harry potter, twilight saga and if you want longer titles, star trek (lost count how many dvds are released), believe me, movies like these do not come around every day.
what I loved about this movie, is that it was made well, the acting, sets, storyline, location and so much more and the movie keeps you interested and addicted to watch more and it didn't have endless scenes of special effect, most of the time computer generated to do this. I enjoyed this movie and I will watch it again, this movie is not a see once and shelf it. I can still hope for the extended version....
