I sent her away. I wanted to be alone. The stars are SO beautiful.
16 December 2018 | by SylviastelSee all my reviews

The cast is first rate with Helena Bonham Carter playing Raina, a Bulgarian girl, during the war. One of George Bernard Shaw's early plays, this staged drama is about love and war between Raina and a Swiss soldier. The cast is solid with Kika Markham, Patsy Kensit, Pip Torrens, Dinsdale Landen and others. There are moments where you can see Carter's range and talent in her performance. She was a star then and now almost thirty years ago.
