In 1813, Capitaine Jacques St. Ives, a Hussar in the Napoleonic wars, is captured and sent to a Scottish prison camp. He's a swashbuckler, so the prison's commander, Major Farquar Bolingbroke Chevening, asks for lessons in communicating with women. Both men have their eyes on the lovely Flora, who resides with her aunt, the iconoclastic and well-traveled Miss Susan Emily Gilcrist. By chance, living close to the camp is Jacques's grandfather and brother, whom Jacques believes died years before. Jacques decides to escape, find his relatives, and win the hand of Flora; Major Chevening and an unforeseen enemy stand in his way. Can Miss Gilcrist contrive to make everything work out? Written by
a nice romantic comedy. not extraordinary, not so bad, only common. the story is far to be seductive and acting remains occasion for a not hard work for good cast. so, an old story, an old performance. only isles of interest - the roles created by Miranda Richardson and Richard E. Grant. the not inspired idea - Jean - Mark Barr as Jacques Sait Ives. his desire to define the character is admirable but he remains only a French actor in skin of a French character,the not great choice for a role who must drive the story. for the fans of first XIX century atmosphere , the film could be a nice option. for the others - meeting with few interesting actors.
