Love Everlasting (Ma l'amor mio non muore)

A military officer's daughter, banished from her Central European homeland, heads to France and takes on a new identity. There she meets a young man who, unbeknown to her, is the prince of her Central European homeland - who also happens to be there under a new identity. Why she doesn't recognize her homeland's prince is not explained. Equally odd, neither of the two expats recognize from speech styles that they are from the same homeland. Even by the standard of unrealism that's norm for romance tales, this one's quite a stretch. Yet it's hardly the ultimate romance tale suggested by the title. In fact, it's hardly any tale at all - more a showcase for impressive wardrobe changes, and equally impressive displays of the acting style that has inspired endless parodies.
