Italian marshmallow
23 April 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

OK,this film is like a marshmallow,sugary,intense,then it's gone.Beautiful people,Bonham Carter and Maloney(yes he is handsome,I weirdly never forgot his intense owlish face as Prosper Profond),cavort around in 18th century Italy,in stunning masks,and theatrical costumes.At first I watched it,it took me to Italy for a brief period ,then it finished and I was back in West York(yay).However I watched it again,and something lingered in my mind,perhaps there is a message in this quiet little film,perhaps it is Iris who has the ugly soul,with the beautiful face.I do think it should be watched a few times to get that across,and it is obligatory to eat an Italian dish whilst watching this,it sort of completes the essence of another time and place.
