Film Review - Tea with Mussolini
Franco Zeffirelli is truly a great director and cinematographer. But he's not a great story teller. Tea with Mussolini is the true story of a group of mostly British women living in Italy during World War II.
Against a back drop of beautiful buildings and art, the reality is this story is about this group of women rolling with the punches during the war. There's very little to jump up and down and be excited about. It's beautiful; not much happens. Your basic Yawn Fest.
Directed by Franco Zeffirelli
Released in 1999
MPAA Rating: PG
