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.

Visitor Comments
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.
