Storyline

From the Irish countryside to London to New York City and back again, Maggie Sheridan (Dame Helen Mirren) reenters the world as a countess and shady art dealer. With her panache and charisma, she finds more than an auction, a rekindled interracial love affair, helpful relatives, and a painting of great price. She finds more than she bargained for in the labyrinth and milieu of stolen art. Written by <WDRazo@prodigy.net>

Trivia

In the scene in which Maggie Sheridan (Dame Helen Mirren) and Robert Tassi (Franco Nero) are making love, he is seen upside-down and she is wearing a small turban and a dark dress or robe.

This movie is totally worth watching, buying and keeping. Helen Mirren is just extraordinary and the plot is outstanding. You'll be caught in the plot from start to finish in one of the most intriguing and exciting mysteries ever put on the screen. Magnificent!
