I love old movies, so when I saw this was considered a 3 star movie, I though great another great movie to watch. My disappointment did not take long to evolve. Not only was it hard to pretend that the two main characters (boyer and Colbert) were Russian at all!! With her English accent and his Obvious French Accent was distracting to say the least. I know they were royalty, but come on!, the simplest of house task for these two as domestic servants was ridiculous. Story was mildly hard to follow and boring at times. Colbert was a bit of an over actor in this one. If the story is suppose to be in a particular country or suppose to have a particular nationality for the characters, it would be better to have them both speak a fake accent or at least both speak with an English accent so at least we can reasonable pretend they are from Russia!!
