Storyline

Determined to gatecrash her ex-lover's funeral on glamorous French hideaway Ile-de-Re, former Hollywood siren Helen (Joan Collins) escapes her London retirement home with the help of Priscilla (Pauline Collins), a repressed English housewife stuck in a bad marriage. Pooling their limited resources, they hit the road together by coach, ferry, car and foot in a race to get to the funeral on time, becoming entangled in a love triangle with a reclusive Italian millionaire (Franco Nero) along the way. On this unforgettable journey, they find true friendship in one another - and have the time of their lives.

Heart-wearming story
10 August 2017 | by Swissangel4616See all my reviews

Joan Collins is back and she has wonderful scenes. There are no aliens nor guns just two old ladies who came together with some sad and some funny moments. And there is just more than it looks on the beginning.

Camera work and scenery are wonderful.

For the younger CGI and X-Men-whatever generation it might be slow and possible boring but I would call it as a wonderful heart wearming old school movie. And Joan Collins (wellknow as Alexis Carrington Colby from the 80s super hit "Dynasty") is portraying wonderful a old Hollywood diva.

Fazit: personally I loved it
