Incredibly underrated film.
Yes it does remind one of Zorba the Greek 1964, but still it is different.
Anthony Quinn gives one of the best performances of his career
I was going through queen filmography, and i wasn't very excited for the film because of the bad reviews the only thing that made me watch it is Quinn and the title. The movie completely consumed me, a "man on fire" scenario, where the lead characters is racing against time surrounded by troubles, filled with methodological references, life of Greek migrants, poor family, sick son, gambling, and alive performances by Quinn and Irene Papas, the movie ends with a powerful note leaving the viewer with a hopeless smile.
"A dream of kings" a movie that fits the title and one of the most underrated movies ever made.
