Reviews
Mine: I fought seeing this for a long time. Cher just scares me these days, I am afraid that her skin is just going to fly off it is so tight. BUT, I have to admit that this is a wonderful movie. Even Cher is good in it. Great ensemble cast. Beautiful scenery. Compelling story.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: A boy whose mother has died and whose father has all but abandoned him is raised by a group of eccentric British women in 1930s Florence. The coming of war has great impact on the women--known as the Scorpioni--and their flamboyant American counterparts in the artsy expatriate community, but cannot sever ties between the young man and his "surrogate mothers." Entertaining if not always focused comedy-drama based on director Zeffirelli's own experiences as a youth; coscripted by John Mortimer.
