Storyline

Rudolf, Crown Prince of Austria, is fettered on all sides. He's bored; his father, the emperor, is domineering; his politics are more liberal than his father's, but he knows his views carry no weight. He agrees to marry a princess to sire an heir, then spends his nights as a playboy. In 1888, he meets Marie Vetsera, 17, a baroness's daughter. She is resolute, smitten, and wants nothing in return for her love. The Prime Minister is alarmed; he contrives to have her sent away. Rudolf sinks into dissipation. When she returns, how will the lovers handle the opposition of society and their families? Can Rudolf find a way for them to be together? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

25 April 2001 | by (us) – See all my reviews

I had insomnia and this film didn't cure it.

I've wanted to see a Charles Boyer film before and when this one came on(TCM),I was excited and disappointed that it was only in French,but the storyline and acting grabbed my attention and it didn't matter that there were subtitles.

Nobody's mentioned it,so I'll be the first...Boyer was one good looking dude...he was very good in this role.The only problem that I had with the movie is the ending...I wished that it could've been different.



If a movie stays on your mind days after viewing it,it's a good one and I gave this a 9.
