Poorly written, directed and very inaccurate,
This review is from: Marie Antoinette [DVD]   (DVD)
Don't blame the actors and actresses who do their very best with this terrible film that will most likely waste 2 hours of your life unless you are a young girl under about 16 years of age. Apart from the awful mismatch to the real events of Marie Antoinette's life and the omission of a number of important events such as the famous necklace incident and the flight to Varennes (or is that it at the end? It's all so wishy washy and ambiguous).
One of the worst things is the awful choices for most of the music used in the film. What on earth is the otherwise excellent song "I want candy" by Bow Wow Wow from the 80s doing here for example?
If you are looking for an authentic period piece then definitely forget it. You won't hear much french spoken (or sung)and most of the actors and actresses speak with American accents.
Overall, the film is inspid and boring with only a few nice shots of landscape and animals to liven it up. If I haven't yet succeeded in stopping you watching this then it is available used for only 1p ... which kind of says it all really. Why Kirsten Dunst would waste her talents on this mindless garbage is beyond me.
