'Ivana Trump's For Love Alone'
(Stephen Collins, Sanna Vraa, Trevor Eve, et al / DVD / NR / (1996) 2019 / Mill Creek Entertainment)
Overview: 'Ivana Trump's For Love Alone' follows the triumphs and tragedies of Katrinka Kovár, a young Czechoslovakian ski prodigy who discovers high-society splendor in the arms of a wealthy American businessman.
When lust turns to lies, Katrinka - long haunted by a burning secret from her past - sets out to find the love she left behind.
DVD Verdict: Based upon the magnificent autobiographical novel by Ivana Trump, this is an epic story of a young Eastern European woman who escapes to embrace the American Dream.
Beautifully directed and sharply adapted from the book, the motion picture captures the fears and hopes, the passion and grasping of one of the most intriguing women to ever be part of America's passing parade.
While names are changed and events altered a bit, the truth of the novel never is lost and the film strives to remain truthful to Ivana's triumphant story.
This is truly an inspiring tale of achievement, of struggle, of heartbreak, and ultimately love. A deeply moving, powerful story and fitting tribute to a remarkable woman's strength and courage. I highly recommend it. This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.78:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
