i think this movie is stellar!, 14 January 2007
Author: barbara-kuhl from United States

It's not a Chinese-food-movie (you forget what you saw by the time you exit the theater) and it deals with so many identifiable issues....prejudice (adddressing the gay and Jewish population particularly), lost love, the longing for fantasy beyond day to day's set in a captivating time period (just as WWII broke out) in Italy, features FABULOUS actors who should all get NOMINATIONS, wonderful costumes and a romantic and delicious MUSICAL SCORE! As well, it's quite funny at times...bittersweet and was written by the sadly-no-longer-with-us playwright PETER BARNES (ENCHANTED APRIL, THE RULING CLASS) and directed by sleeping giant JOHN IRVIN.
