Luminous, fine and arty adaptation of the novel
28 September 2001 | by (White Plains, NY) – See all my reviews

I recommand "L'allée du roi" to all those who wish to discover for the first time the royal court life in XVIIth century France, for those who enjoy intrigues, and for those who simply wish to contemplate sensual and art-like pictures. Good suspense, genuine, NOT overloaded emotions, breezzy and warm atmosphere, delicacy in speech, in light, in figures - a delight ;-)
