Metascore®Generally favorable reviewsbased on a weighted average of allcritic review scores.
Noisy and giddy, the film makes a stab at "Moulin Rouge" territory but ends up as a very trite story of boy loses girl, boy finds girl. It is also stridently camp -- not so much roaring '20s as screaming.

Both script and direction are the work of the glittering comedic polymath Stephen Fry.
The movie has a sweetness and tenderness for these characters, poor lambs, blissfully unaware that they're about to be flattened by World War II.
A brilliant, giddy satiric romp with a discreetly moralistic viewpoint beneath its high-style wit.
