Storyline

Beautiful and naïve Maggy Lunel arrives in Paris completely broke. She becomes an artist's model and the toast of Paris, attracting the attention of Picasso-like painter Julien Mistral, an arrogant and selfish man who places his work above everything. Their paths diverge as Mistral's art catches the eye of a rich American woman who becomes his patroness and eventually his wife. During the war years in France, Mistral collaborates with the Nazis in order to continue with his work, a decision that will come back to haunt him years later. In the meantime, Maggy has a daughter named Teddy who grows up and falls in love with Mistral with whom she has a child named Fauve. As Mistral ages, he comes to terms with his selfish past and wartime betrayal through his art, leaving a beautiful legacy for his daughter, Fauve. Written by Anonymous

Glittery-glam soap with a dash of history for flavour!
7 June 2010 | by See all my reviews

As a kid I adored Stephanie Powers in Hart To Hart and would watch her in anything..even my childhood favourite; The Bionic Woman (sady, she was in the bigfoot episodes, the equivalent of 'jumping the shark' but I still liked her!) and recently I had a chance to see Mistral's Daughter again. It actually held up well to my now fairly sophisticated movie taste. I don't like to find flaws anyway, so I will leave that to those who enjoy that sort of thing. The cast was a wonderful assortment of talent. Stephanie was so beautiful and played the age range very well. I also found the actress who played Fauve, Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu to be uniquely beautiful as well. Timothy Dalton was appealingly young and handsome though rather slight as compared to my memory of him. Stacy Keach was suitably sexy and intense, a good actor, though hard to feel much attraction to such a selfish character and the hare-lip turned me off. I loved some of the paintings used in the film though! A lot of fun especially for any seasoned TV watcher as you will see a lot of familiar and young faces, Joanna Lumley is a treat, as always. As usual some of the best acting was done by the secondary roles, in this case feature film calibre roles played by; Pierre Malet as Avigdor, who was very good, sometimes heart-wrenchingly so, Stéphane Audran as the selfless Paula and the incredible Lee Remick as the cool master manipulator with a self-destructive passion for Mistral. Sure one can find faults, but why bother? Enjoy yourself!
