5.0 out of 5 stars Operatic!, 15 Mar 2006
This review is from: La Reine Margot [DVD] [1995] (DVD)
I adore this film. I've watched it four times in the last year and will probably watch it at least once more. I can't believe there are some that don't like it! One person has compared it to 'Mills & Boons'...well, it was actually written by Dumas, and it is a romance, so I'm not sure what you were expecting.
As for the gore in the film, it deals with a massacre that claimed the lives of 6000 people, so a level of gore is only to be expected.
This film is wonderful. It won the Jury Prize at the 1994 Cannes Film Festival and deservedly so. The acting is superb, winning the best actress award at cannes for Virna Lisi and an unprecedented fourth cesar award for Isabelle Adjani. The sets and costumes are impeccable. The direction is excellent and the dialogue almost poetic. I can't imagine why anyone would be dissapointed by this film. Dumas has never been done better.
