Nice costume period drama!
17 August 2014 | by (Sarajevo B&H) – See all my reviews

I liked the first film of this series and I stumbled across the third part. Costumes and cinematography are great, and there a lot of twists and turns in the plot.

Acting is very good as well, and it made me a worth wile to watch. I really think they made these films with excellence and interest in a detail.

There is too much of romance involved, I guess that age was that way. today it is a whole different matter.

France was beautiful then as it is today. Scene of Angelique riding south is a memorable one!
