‘SIGNORA VOLPE’: A WEDDING, ONE CONCERNED AUNT AND A SPY

May 2, 2022 4 Comments

Any day a solid new TV show debuts, we like to feature it. Signora Volpe is new on Acorn TV and as is the usual rule here, we want to chat it up.

Signora Volpe Series One (2022) Acorn TV Review

Working as a spy is something Sylvia Fox (Emilia Fox) is good at. Trouble is, she’s suddenly become more than a little unsure when some of the identities of her assets come too close to a reveal. Danger that no one but her seems concerned with. Not even the ex (Jamie Bamber) whom she’s currently having another fling with. Needing a break and time away, she unexpectedly takes the opportunity of her nieces Italian wedding to get away.

Even that doesn’t seem far enough away when again Sylvia finds another mystery. This time the disappearance and mysterious figure that is her niece’s fiancé. As Sylvia tries to find answers and learn who he really is, she comes to realize that perhaps there’s another way of life.

No secret is ever made that I do love a good Acorn TV production. Honestly, with Signora Volpe, I started to watch it weeks ago only to forget about it until, as usual, the last minute. Regardless, there’s something really exotic about this production. Part of this is because, based on what I’ve seen from this streamer, this is a very different type of story. Normally we see the charming, small village type of productions. This one is a bigger scale with its spies and of course, a setting in Italy. Something I’m here for.

The cast here is really good too. I actually love seeing actors like Emilia Fox and Jamie Bamber. Both of whom are actors I remember from my early period drama days in the likes of David Copperfield and Horatio Hornblower. There’s also Tara Fitzgerald as part of the cast as well. All in all, everyone, even those who aren’t familiar, are good and help to make the production quality. Some of the ways Fox is styled, I’ll confess, distract and I don’t think suit her well. But again, it’s still all good.

I haven’t watched the entire first set of installments so of course opinions may shift or alter, but ‘An Anxious Aunt’ which is our first episode, is very well done. Certainly piques interest enough to watch more.

Content: there’s at least one use of the f-word and some other more minor profanity. A woman is dead, floating in a body of water.

    Definitely brain candy, beautiful Umbria and Italian lifestyle, all the wine and gorgeous Italian men. I love the setting and spy story however, too ridiculous to digest. The scene prior to capturing the bad guys at the train station and the train station capture itself. She against 3 or 4 bad guys somehow tied up and toting a gun, where in her pants pocket? How did she do this, too stupid for words unless she is robocop.

    Otherwise Capitano is leading her on and the audience to sign up and keep watching.

    My take away is I want to visit Italy and brush up on my Italian. Ciao!

      I fully enjoyed it. Most of the time any action film or anything with elements of that usually requires me to suspend some belief. But I (normally) don’t mind and here, the good FAR outweighs my questions. :) Hope you enjoy what you do decide to watch.
