Not as charming as it could have been, Triumph of Love plays too broadly and amounts to little more than a trifle.

I was periodically put off by a certain self-consciousness of delivery.
The characters in Triumph of Love are trifles, so that the farcical situation, which depends on the audience buying quick changes of heart -- like falling in love in an instant -- has no resonance.
In short, a film dependent on deception relies on the Clark Kent school of disguise, and it doesn't work.
It could have been something special, but two things drag it down to mediocrity -- director Clare Peploe's misunderstanding of Marivaux's rhythms, and Mira Sorvino's limitations as a classical actress.
The entire cast is first-rate, especially Sorvino.
Okay princess story -- nothing special.
The characters jabber away, the premise becomes ever more improbable, and you may well find yourself drifting to sleep.
This gender-bending romp is enjoyably witty, even if it feels rather long and pointless.
It is the audience who will feel duped even more than the characters in the film.
A concoction of airy artifice.
