This isn't exactly "The Grapes of Wrath" or "Citizen Kane"...but so what? I found it a very adequate period-piece comedy that even occasionally had a hint of Monty Python humor. The musical soundtrack was decidedly 21st Century...but it "worked" for me.
The cinematography was surprisingly well-crafted, in my opinion, and the acting was perfectly adequate, albeit nothing exceptional. All the actresses were decidedly attractive -- why do I think that 14th-Century nuns in an Italian convent during the Black Death were maybe not quite so hot as depicted here?? -- and Mischa Barton proves once again that she is a truly gorgeous young woman (although she was NOT one of the several females who had any nude scenes).
Bottom line: worth a rental, and also an OK "date movie".
