delctable and disrespectful
22 August 2003 | by (Parker, CO) – See all my reviews

I own satellite TV and had to order showtime for just this movie. I was a big fan of Olivier Martinez so i was really excited to see him perform in it. But I never realized how great Helen Mirren was. She is a great actress. I am 23 yrs old and never have been interested period films to much but........ The two of them( Helen and Olivier) really were enjoyable to watch. I was mezmerized about how Olivier could be so delectable and disrespectful at the same time. This movie never lost me at any point and it really kept me interested in the story. The emotions I felt from Helens acting ability during the movie were so real to me. She expressed pain, agony, embarrasment and pure happiness SO well. The end of the movie left us wondering about Helens character. Which I could do with out because I hate to be left hanging. HAHAHA I really can not express how much I liked this movie.
