A nice piece of French soft-core
8 January 1999 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

This movie is French but the dialog is mostly English. The story takes place on a Greek island in 1914. The costumes are very nice and evocative of the period with lots of hats, frills, and ruffles. The sets are great, too (a palatial island villa with lots of gardens and statuary). The cast is very pretty, and the story is fairly interesting too. It ends rather abruptly and there is no sense of completion, but that's a small complaint. It is shot in a pretty, soft-focus way, with a very nice classical music soundtrack. Well above average for this kind of thing.
