Zeffirelli's film is partly autobiographical, partly fictitious, and concerns his own upbringing and education by a group of English ladies living in Florence at the time of Il Duce's rise to power. This particular brew by Zeffirelli and John Mortimer has a melange of flavours and is deftly poured in the most idyllic of settings, yet it seems oddly lacking in zest.
