Things get worse when Christine meets back up with her childhood acquaintance Raoul and the two fall in love

The photography (excluding the crowd scenes) offers some very cool effects, particularly the very grainy black and white of the "present day" auction scenes.

I was a big fan of this film, which isn't generally the case for musicals.
