just watched this on cable...
This is one tough, searing, emotional roller coaster. Excellent film which should have received much more attention. I didn't even know it existed, and just happened to run across it while searching movies being shown today.

Raul Julia (as usual) gives an honest and truthful performance.

Of course, Vanessa Redgrave is enchanting and engrossing ... certainly not a surprise. But she does a lot to keep a very very dark story from being sunk into a black hole of pathos.

This is not an easy film to sit through - but a must for those who are interested in a character's journey.
