Storyline

Kingdom Swann is a talented but rather naive Scottish artist who lives in Edwardian London with his housekeeper, Violet, a dowdy and self-effacing but very loyal young woman from Lancashire. He is dismayed to find that there is no longer a demand for his style of paintings. Then Violet buys him a camera from the local market stall. Helped by his unscrupulous new assistant, Cromwell Marsh, he soon transforms himself into "Kingdom Swann, Society Photographer" and is much in demand. When two younger sisters want him to take "artistic photographs" of themselves in the nude, Marsh hoodwinks Swann into specialising in "tableaux": photographic versions of famous paintings of nudes, using local prostitutes as his models. Marsh realises that he can make a great deal of money on the black market by secretly printing selected parts of these photos and selling them under the brand name "Gentlemen's Relish" to a supplier of pornography. Swann is completely innocent of what is going on. Violet, ... Written by Martin Underwood <imdb@martinunderwood.f9.co.uk>

Amusing Little Movie
12 November 2001 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

An amusing semi-comedy. As always Connolly makes a great fist of this role which is part serious and part light comedy. Support actors do a good job. While the script is predictable it is fun and moves at a pace which holds your interest. The subject matter is pornography in the early days of photography which makes for a slightly different movie.

Dont go out of your way but if you see this movie in a TV schedule take the opportunity for an hour and half of light entertainment
