| Melodrama for morons
"A Time of Destiny", set during WWII, tells of a duplicitous "black sheep" son's quest to avenge his father's death by killing his brother-in-law, a fellow soldier. An obvious melodrama with numerous nonsequiturs required to make the story work, acting so perfect as to be unreal, and technical and artistic mediocrity, "....Destiny" makes for a marginal watch at best. Okay for hard up couch potatoes into melodrama.
