Great movie!
16 April 2000 | by Bondgirl1See all my reviews

You know it's a good movie when your husband pretends to be painting behind you but keeps asking you every five minutes, what happened? What did she say? Turn it up I can't hear it. This is definitely a wonderful romantic mystery and I recommend it to anyone who loves period movies with independent capable beautiful women as well as men in knee high boots. Wonderful movie.
