I had no expectations apart from having seen many of the excellent TV shows of the same character.
This movie was a surprise. Instead of being firmly set in 1920's Melbourne, this movie had so many exotic locations and just one 'purportedly' shot in Melbourne.
The story was a 'Boy's Own Adventure' - taken expertly by the stylish and confident Miss Fisher.
The plot and dialogue at times were a little too contrived, but the net result was a satisfying romp through England,London and Palestine.
The cinematography was excellent and made seeing the film on the big screen worthwhile. Visually it was a joy and production values were very high so all scenes, locales and events were a treat.
The plot proceeded at a good pace and the audience was slowly led to the 'Indiana Jones' like intrigue. Gentle humour and soft farce meant that the film didn't take itself too seriously.
A good job all round, with good performances from the whole cast.
I'm glad I got a chance to see it in the cinema.
