a bit of romance
12 April 2002 | by (Budapest, Hungary) – See all my reviews

Handsome, penniless young guys with sparkling blue eyes :) Pretty, penniless ladies in frocks on horsebacks. Adventure, love, romance, comedy. The original score is very good. The plot is a bit predictable though. You know from the beginning that everyone will be happy in the end. And that is just fine.
