Tempest review
7 May 2020 | by JoeytheBritSee all my reviews

Enjoyable historical drama in which The Great Profile plays a Russian peasant who rises to the rank of Lieutenant immediately before the revolution only to find himself shunned by his fellow officers and the haughty princess he falls for. Fine chemistry between Barrymore and the beautiful German actress Camilla Horn helps paper over most of the film's meagre flaws.
