This version is set in 1774, not 1714, as the Wilder novel and 2004 version are, which aligns the story more closely to the historical Micaela Villegas (1748-1819), who was an actress known as "La Perricholi" and the mistress of Peru's viceroy. See more »

Really stagy, over acted, over lit, over music'd with almost constant strings. Could have been so much better. Almost painful to watch and I usually love old B&W movies. The combination of the bad lighting and unbelievably almost non-existent creativity in choosing camera positions make whatever abilities the actors had virtually invisible.
