Storyline

Philip, an orphan, was taken in and brought up by his cousin Ambrose, a Devon landowner he loves like a father. At a time, Ambrose, who has been advised by his physician a warmer climate, leaves for Tuscany. There he meets and marry Rachel, a half-Italian cousin of his. After an idyllic outset, the situation deteriorates. Shortly before his death, Ambrose manages to alert Philip: his wife is killing him slowly. Willing to sort out the truth, Philip goes to Ambrose's place but he does not find Rachel, who has gone away. Instead he meets Rainaldi, her friend and lawyer, who does not inspire him with confidence. He returns to his estate, persuaded that Rachel is evil and is the direct cause of Ambrose's death. Some time later, Rachel announces her coming. Determined to welcome her coolly, he is stunned to discover a woman not only beautiful but elegant, intelligent and sensitive. Instead of strangling her like he said he would, he falls in love. Madly. Written by Guy Bellinger

Panoramic camera shots do not a story make
24 June 2017 | by PipAndSqueakSee all my reviews

Oh Dear! This story has much potential and many opportunities to depict themes not often seen... BUT, oh my! How could this be such a miss! Frankly, it doesn't matter which actors are in the various roles, there just isn't enough plot development, suitable dialogue, other voiced 'direction' or, God forbid, CONTENT, to warrant taking your brain to the cinema. We're not reading the damn book whilst looking at the bl**dy pictures, f-f-s, as that seems to be the effect we're left with. Read along and look at the lovely pictures...Nah, my imagination is better than that, yours is too. This seascape of imagery is just a big wasted opportunity not worth leaving your easy chair for.
