toothsome trash
7 May 2002 | by (Weaverville, NC) – See all my reviews

Joan Collins was at the height of her popularity when she made this monument to gaudy excess. Collins plays a young French woman who suffers at the hands of the Nazis in occupied France, sees her mother die, loses her brother and sister, becomes a fashion designer, builds her own couture house, falls in and out of love, and uses her fortune from peddling fashion to seek out her lost siblings. All, of course, while looking fabulous in period and couture costumes(can't disappoint all the DYNASTY fans, after all!)Melodramatic and hammy, but engaging if you're in the mood for glitzy trash.
