But then, maybe I don't.
Since those sentences were rather cryptic, I think I should explain.
We just got this from the library.
The odd thing is, I'm not sure whether I should watch it.
"What!" you're thinking, "I thought she liked The Scarlet Pimpernel! I thought she wanted to watch this!"
Well, I did. I know beforehand that Anthony Andrews would be amazingly perfect as Sir Percy, and even though Jane Seymour's looks aren't quite right for Marguerite, I was sure she would be brilliant regardless.
But after reading El Dorado (which the movie is partly based on) and being told some things about the movie from Miss Dashwood I found a completely different problem, by the name of Armand St. Just.
Problem 1: In the movie, Armand is living with a woman he hasn't married. Excuse me! Was that really necessary? In Armand's romance, there was nothing more than
Problem 2: The woman is named Louise, and she's an understudy of Marguerite. But I liked Mademoiselle Lange (Armand's fiancee.) Under Sir Percy and Marguerite, she's probably my favorite character.
Problem 3: Armand is a member of the Commitee of Public Safety under Chauvelin. What!!! Armand is, must be, a member of the League. This ruins the whole theme of El Dorado and certainly will make Sir Percy's actions, as well as his and Marguerite's, appear in a totally different light.
This has probably been a very incoherent post, but I want advice from you. How does it portray Armand? Should I watch it?
Remember, I want to be convinced, I just can't convince myself.
