Even better than I expected!
20 November 2005 | by (Brasília, Brazil) – See all my reviews

As a Maurice Druon's Rois Maudits fan I got crazy when I read about the 2005 TV series. Then I knew that there was a 1972 series and I got crazy to get it. Well, it was even better than I imagine.

The Rois Maudits collection tells about the curse Jacques the Molay, great master of the Templars, cast on the French King, Philippe IV Le Bel, and his descendants till the 13th generation. Tragedy after tragedy comes over the characters. So an advise: do not love one of them too much, or you can be very sad and very quick!

People must know that it's a play style movie, the actors and actress came from the comédie française and are wonderful at this kind of production. What amazed me most is the fact that even when the character of the book does not fit the person, the actor or actress impersonates it too well that I got convinced that they are the same person at all. One example is Georges Ser, he is Louis X Le Hutin, exactly he is in the book.

The best book made film I ever seen. I can miss one or two scenes, specially those of baby Edward (III) in the first episode, but all is in the correct place and the actors are great. The only real problem is: there are not subtitles. You must know French, or like me, have a poor French but remember all the books and dialogues. Well, I enjoyed, and I recommend!
