Prevented from marrying her nobleman lover because of her commoner status, Veronica Franco is left with two choices: join a convent or become a courtesan. Following in mother's footsteps, she chooses the latter. Sn 16th-century Venice, follow Franco as she rises to power and fearlessly fights off accusations of witchcraft.

Following the rise and fall of an enrapturing Venetian courtesan in the 1500s, this movie is a decent watch. The costumes were gorgeous, and the main character sometimes endearing as you follow her from one comical "becoming a whore" montage to another. Although sometimes gag-worthy in plot (due to some poor decision making on the courtesan's part), the final scene of the movie is probably one of the best parts; both comical & intense.
