Hi, I agree that this a wonderful movie. I even heard that Nigel Hawthorne and Joan Collins both paid money to produce this movie....that gives one an particular good notion what a great couple of actors they are with such a big heart for their profession....Everyone who loves great acting , should watch this film,several times!!!! Seldom do we see this kind of acting. For me, as an professional opera singer, it is almost a guideline for acting in the 18 century, such finesse......Hawthorne and Collins are enjoying themselves enormous....
