Talk Of Angels

BB.5

(out of 5)


Lush-looking Miramax cheese about an Irish lass () who is sent to live as a governess in war-torn Spain and ends up charming her employer () and his politically rebellious son (). Along the way she experiences the Spanish Civil War first-hand, makes friends with a compatriot governess () and grows up a little from the innocent maid she used to be, but with all its epic feel and beautiful locales the film never seems to manage to be more than a mild distraction. Fans of Spanish cinema will enjoy seeing its most respected actresses, including ,  and  in supporting roles, but the film really belongs to Walker, and for all the charm and talent she’s showing she deserves for it to be better.
