I hope we get indoors soon, Jean-Baptiste! I've worn all my warmest underthings and I'm still freezing!

Don't worry, no one's going to pull up my skirts and look!

i saw this film when i was a young boy at the age of 15 it captured a wide area in my mind that i dreamt to see it again and after about 3 years i got the film from a friend and watched it for several times,and since then it was always on my mind for the last ten years...actually the most attractive thing in this movie is the character of Desirée which was a beautiful innocent female that we miss in our days...also the character of bernadotte was very positive and attractive simulating the men of old ages...and finally marlon brando gave the charactor of n.bonaparte its spirit..............
