for reflect, "ad usum Delphini", a period, a life and an art. for the mix of sadness and romanticism. for the work of Mell Ferrer. without be a great film, giving the impression to be part of the so many frescoes of the Hollywood from the same period, it is nice and seductive and noble in its generous message about compromises, glory, politic and Church. and this represents a precious virtue for define it as an oasis. for atmosphere and for the grace of details. and, sure, for something special. like an old scent . so, a beautiful film.
