great film showing a period of history that im fasinated by
on 8 February 2011
this is a great film showing the austrian emperor franz joseph and his beautiful bride sissy, elizabeth. i know im biased but i find this period of history so intresting, the lead up to world war one and the causes, effects and reasons which led to the great war are so poignant and emotional to be as my great grand father gave his life in 1918 just days before the end of the war
as this is a german film which is dubbed in to english i found myself watching their mouths as they clearly wernt saying what the dialouge was but for me this just added to the charm of the film.
this wasnt the best film ive ever seen but it is one of my favourites, the tv series fall of eagles is by far superior but as im so interested in this period of history i did love the acting, and the chemistry between the two lead actors and can say this is truely a great film
