"Superb. If you are aware of Paul Bolwes' literary achievements (if you're not it's time you were) don't miss this excellent film version of three of his best short stories. Narrated by Bowles himself, wonderful on-location filming will have you mopping jungle sweat from your forehead and Moroccan sand from your eyes. Acting, directing, music all no less brilliant than Bowles enchanting storytelling. I'll list this as one of the top ten best films in the world."
