Charming little period piece
3 November 2003 | by (Colorado Springs) – See all my reviews

In a word, I liked this movie so much, I would buy it immediately if it were available on DVD.

Linda Purl is great as an ingénue, who coming from America to France, is totally overwhelmed by a different culture, which is intensified by her always having been very protected back home, but now finds herself exposed to some of the worst that humanity is prone to.

Looking at another review on this site of this movie, I am always amazed how every movie seems to attract attention so far on the negative and on the positive, which makes one wonder whether the people commenting saw the same movie. Differences in taste, obviously. Ain't it great? As the French would say Vive la difference! ;-)

I was just able to finally buy a DVD of this little gem.
