Gripping tale of forbidden passion in a foreboding climate. The scenes unravel into a spectacular frenzied chase through the Mexican backwaters as we are led to the inevitable and almost allegorical conclusion. Kevin Costner is at his smouldering best alongside sensual Madeleine Stowe and Anthony Quinn excels as the overlord tortured by the double betrayal. Compelling stuff. Based on the novella by Jim Harrison who also wrote the screenplay.
