Swann (Jeremy Irons), an eligible bachelor in the best circles of fin-de-siècle Paris, has also some more vulgar but rich friends, the Verdurins. Through them he meets Odette (Ornella Muti), a courtesan, with whom he falls hopelessly in love. She seems to enjoy his company, for which he pays, but considers herself free to socialise and sleep where she pleases, particularly with a rival called de Forcheville.

This made you constantly wait for it to be over which is a shame really. It contained some spectacular acting but there was just a certain lack of a good manuscript which made the movie experience not as good as it could have been,

Bill T (ru) wrote: Choppy and slow John Wayne drama here. Here he's paired up with legitamitely-bored looking Lauren Bacall as he steers a ferry boat of Chinese immigrants to Hong Kong! That'lll teach those Commies! Throughout this, Wayne just can't stop puffing up his cheeks and start verbal hemmoraging the Reds. Meanwhile, the story is awkwardly put together and just ENDS without no real satisifactory climax. Not a very big highlight of either one of their careers, I'm afraid.
