English This is weak. In the 90s, perhaps it was an attractive romance on the subject of Hemingway and Agnes von Kurowská, but today it’s just a memory of the years when such a serious subject was given to the likes of Chris O'Donnell or Sandra Bullock. It’s better to devote your time to the 1932 novel "A Farewell to Arms" or its first adaptation with Gary Cooper. Quality is guaranteed in these two works. ()
