Noticed by George Romney (Boy Gobert), an artist, Emma (Michèle Mercier), a young shepherdess, leaves her sheep behind to settle down in London with Romney, who employs her as a model. In return, the painter transforms the young peasant into an elegant young socialite, soon surrounded by a crowd of admirers. Her rise in society is meteoric. Her hand is asked for in marriage by old Lord Hamilton (Sir John Mills), the English ambassador in Naples. Emma accepts the offer and follows her husband to Sicily and becomes the confidante of Queen Marie-Caroline (Nadja Tiller) of Naples. She will also live a great love with Admiral Horatio Nelson (Richard Johnson). Unfortunately, Lord Nelson is killed at the Battle of Trafalgar while Emma is pregnant with her child.

Sexy Costume Drama
3 October 2006 | by Simon-RogopagSee all my reviews

No masterpiece in any respect, this film is a poor man's Angelique and not the best out of vast output of Christian-Jaque, but it is still quite enjoyable and fun to watch. I would still rate it higher than most of costume-dramas of contemporary Hollywood.

Visually film is really nice to watch, story evolves in that light 60-ies manner, though the last , slightly "more serious" part drags a bit. Several nice actors are present, especially worth to mention Michelle Mercier and Nadjia Tiller.

I find Nadjia especially effective in this movie. She was a beautiful and talented actress and was definitely underused by film industry. Same goes for the main start of the film - It's a pity the fame of Michelle Mercier faded so quickly.
