The Young Lovers is about a young couple - she is Eastern European and the daughter of a communist ambassador, he is in American code expert working for intelligence at the American Embassy in London. At the Covent Garden Opera, watching the Swan Lake ballet, they meet and fall in love and a problem immediately confronts them because they are from different sides of the Iron Curtain. They find their every move monitored by both sides. The course of true love is eventually blocked by bureaucracy, forcing hero and heroine to escape.
This is one of the many films that have a promising synopsis and fail to really engage.
It's the story of two young lovers who meet at the ballet in London. One works in the code room at the US Embassy, the other the daughter of the Soviet ambassador. They decide that love transcends politics and run away together. They have an unconvincing escape across the channel during a violent storm and are last seen sailing away together (to where no-one is sure).
All the potential for drama and conflict between the two bitter enemies is lost and the actors themselves seem unconvinced.
