Trivia

Robert Hossein was chosen as the director of the movie until he asked for another year and a half before starting to shoot. Producer Raymond Danon then turned to Pierre Granier-Deferre because the film was scheduled for the 200th anniversary of the French revolution and Ute Lemper was only free for the period set.

L'Autrichienne
4 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

The people of France hated Marie -Antoinette, "l'Autrichienne" (that Austrian woman).There were lots of books and movies about her ,more than about her husband Louis the Sixteenth).This one focuses on the last days of the queen ,her iniquitous trial -evidences were found in Vienna archives ,but at the time,there was none- and her death on the guillotine.

André Castelot is a celebrated French historian :his books about the queen are authoritative.However,there was no general agreement about the movie:some people complain about the view of the queen the scenarists gave .They said that her portrait was not neutral,that the queen was then a pitiful sick desperate woman and that her past was almost completely forgotten.

But the main asset of the movie is a use of a German actress as the lead.Neither Michèle Morgan nor Jane Seymour or Norma Shearer was that much credible as Austrian women.

NB "L'Autrichienne" belongs to the spate of movies which were made to commemorate the bicentennial of the French revolution.
