An attractive, intelligent film that's intractably at odds with itself.
The film is elegiac and sad, beautifully mounted, but not as compelling as it should be.

You'll find heartbreakingly star-crossed lovers, a heartless villain (Wilson) and a dazzling backdrop of aristocratic life before and after the Russian Revolution.
Fine candy for mind and eye.
