Time Out says

1 out of 5 stars
As Ridley’s daughter, Scott probably got filmmaking manuals to chew on as a baby and her first directing effort demonstrates their effect. All 1930s films, apparently, must be achingly slow and set to strings-heavy classical – even when they contain a short, silly and thoroughly predictable tale of a fantasist teacher at an island-based girls school, the students who adore her and the Spanish girl who turns up and spoils things. Casting sultry French actress Green as an English island hick was just the first error; thereafter they pile up like bead necklaces round a wannabe flapper’s neck, eventually strangling the film.
