One Woman's Crusade To Save Her Son's Life!
Jurai's Heir | Denham Springs, LA, USA | 02/28/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Academy Award winner Sophia Loren delivers a courageous performance as Marianna Miraldo. A mother who's son is being ravaged by his dependency on cocaine and heroin. After trying everything to get her son clean including rehab, Marianna vows to take desperate measures, and risks everything and everyone she loves in a daring undercover operation. Aided by a hotshot drug agent (Billy Dee Williams), Marianna fights her way through a death-defying battle to perhaps save another family from the brutal tragedy she must overcome.

The picture quality including the color is really good.
The movie format is in Fullscreen 1.33:1
The audio quality is crisp & clear.
The movie is in English.
Supposedly the original version is 193 minutes, but this version is cut down to 133 minutes, but in my opinion because the movie is edited for this DVD, the film moves faster which is a good thing.

Sophia Loren must see and have!."
