Storyline

Love, duty, and the scent of narcissus. Theodora, a young and penniless aristocrat, marries a much older man, self-made millionaire grocer Josiah Brown, so that her father and spinster sisters can live comfortably. Soon after the wedding, she finds herself falling in love with Hector, the Tenth Earl of Bracondale, a playboy she encounters on the social circuit of the very rich -- in the Swiss Alps, Paris, London, and the English countryside. Hector is attracted to her as well. Theodora must choose between love and duty, and then Josiah and Hector must make choices of their own. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A true gem
19 April 2005 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I was one of the lucky few to see the opening show of the film April 5th 2005 in Amsterdam. I must say I loved the whole idea of a gala, they chose a beautiful venue (Tuschinksi Theatre, a great art nouveau building). It was true pleasure! I had high hopes for the movie, and it even surpassed my expectations. Henny Vrienten, a contemporary composer wrote a superb score to accompany the film. The film made me realise how hard it must be to act a part without having your voice to help you get the message over. And all this with very limited facilities. I couldn't but admire the actors who, surrounded by cardboard mountains and what not, acted their parts. Never mind the mountain wobbled when she fell. It was heartwarming. Gloria Swanson was almost physically there, you could feel her emotions, she really was charismatic. Rudolph Valentino's acting was more instinctive, less learned; his charm was touchable and you instantly understood why millions of women fell in love with him. But beyond this, I thought the story to be an eternal classic: true love vs. honour, honesty and appreciation. And, without wanting to give away too much, I liked the triumph of the right choice. So a true gem, hope many will get the chance to see and enjoy it!
