It was not Catherine ....
18 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

...De Medicis who forbade the duels! It was the Cardinal De Richelieu,during Louis the Thirteenth's reign,because that way of settling of scores was decimating the French aristocracy whose duty was to fight for their country first.

Renoir did not take this film seriously.It's the(modest) granddaddy of "La Reine Margot" and other costume dramas in the catholic vs protestants background.Two young nobles want to marry Isabelle ,hence the title (the tournament in the city) .It seems that the director had a comfortable budget at his disposal,but it's far from being more than a footnote in his oeuvre.
