Pretty lame and predictable period farce, but includes some pleasantly gratuitous nudity. Seems to be part of a series of French soft-core productions with Masterpiece Theatre pretensions. I caught the second half on late-night Belgian TV and was delighted and amused to notice Penelope Cruz on-screen. By far the prettiest and liveliest member of the cast, but at least in the sections I saw, she did not get around to displaying her physical assets. It's certainly easy to notice her potential star quality even in this bit of nonsense. My first reaction was, "Now that's a pretty girl." After that came, "Hey, she can actually do some acting too." And then, "Gee, she looks an awful lot like Penelope Cruz."
