Linn's rating of the film The House of the Spirits

Certainly this film is not a great adaptation of Allende's finest book. Nonetheless, for me an emotionally gripping part of the 90ies with great performances of Meryl Streep, Glenn Close and also to a lesser extend Winona Ryder. An embrace of love, spirituality and commitment. Minus two stars, for the ridiculous mix of accents, the score and the shallow ending.
