OK period soap opera
10 June 2018 | by gridoon2020See all my reviews

A handsome, well-staged production, set in 1875 Monte Carlo, with some beautiful vistas and some lovely women, but a bit on the dull side. A good cast is not used to its full capabilities. A murder and a couple of sword fights cannot disguise the fact that this is really a chick flick at heart. My first experience with a Barbara Cartland adaptation, and it's probably enough to realize that it's not for me. **1/2 out of 4.
