The best film on Anne Boleyn to date!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Anne Of The Thousand Days [VHS] (VHS Tape)
This is easily one of my favourite films of all time! The intellectual brilliance, fiery temper and razor-sharp wit of Anne Boleyn was brilliantly captured by Genivieve Bujold and Richard Burton (Henry VIII), Irene Papas (Queen Katherine) and Anthony Quayle (the Cardinal) were also fantastic.
The dialogue was superb and none more so than Anne's, because every scene she was in was a pleasure to watch. Her clothes as well were breathtaking. The real Anne Boleyn was famed for her fashion-sense and the film is certainly true to life, watch out for her coronation dress, the blue velvet gown when she plays chess and her elaborate masquerade outfit. The arrest, trial, imprisonment and execution are all done masterfully. I recommend that you buy this movie as soon as possible!
