| Well acted despite looking quite different from the real people
Watchable and interesting TV movie about the love triangle involving Aristotle Onasis, Maria Callas and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

The casting is tricky here for people so well known. Raoul Julia is a good actor who captures the crude essence of Aristotle. Although physically he is much to big sized, his face isn't too far off so overall he's convincing. Liked Jane Seymour as Maria Callas. She is quite fiery and is the best of the three leads though even skinnier than the real Callas was. Francesca Annis is a strange choice to play Jackie. She does the voice and delicate ladylike quality well but her facial features are too delicate for Jackie who had such overly large features so she just looks too different. She comes across as English despite her efforts.

Overall this is worth watching because the subject matter is good and the actors are first rate despite some physical differences.
