Years later, as a young woman, she ends up in Paris on the eve of World War II. She is working as a singer and dancer in the theatre, where she makes friends with a Gypsy man. At the same time, her mate is throwing herself at a famous Italian singer. Then the Germans invade, and their hatred of Jews and Gypsies soon causes problems for the lovers.

Ian Douglas: This may appeal more to women -- I did not enjoy it and found it tedious. The presence of Johhny Depp is sure to pack in the females, especially as he is once again the romantic lead. The film is partially redeemed by some great music and (operatic) singing.
