Well, I'm from central Europe and the Angelique-films have been a part of the life of everyone here, since the very beginning. The Slovak TV shows it every year and I can't actually imagine not seeing it at least once a year :) It is a perfect mixture of simple, yet great story,love, drama, adventure and history at the same time. Besides, dazzling costumes and settings, beautiful music of Michel Magne and great acting of all the cast (especially Michele Mercier, Robert Hossein and Jean-Louis Trintignant are brilliant) make all of these films a great pleasure to watch. So, when you need to escape from the grey reality, get these films and fly away to a place where courage,bravery and above all love were the heart and soul of everybody's life. Maybe you'll find there what is missing a bit in the world today...
