Hurricane (1979)

Hurricane (1979, USA) C-120m. SCOPE * D: Jan Troell. Starring Mia Farrow, Jason Robards, Max von Sydow, Trevor Howard, Dayton Ka'ne, James Keach, Timothy Bottoms. Completely misfired attempt at remaking the 1937 classic HURRICANE. In the 1920s Farrow travels to Samoa, where her father Robards is in charge. She falls in love with a local tribesman, with tragic results. A picture postcard from Samoa (photographed by Sven Nykvist), but does not at all sustain feature length. Don't mistake this for a disaster movie (even the climactic storm is rather ridiculous). Score by Nino Rota, produced by Dino de Laurentiis. Retitled FORBIDDEN PARADISE.
