Very good Documentary.
25 September 2006 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This was a very human account of the lives and deaths of Marie Antoinette and Louis the XVI focusing primarily on Marie. It is an account of their lives from birth to death and the circumstances leading to the downfall of the French monarchy. It is done with actors and many painted images of the King and Queen. It tells of the great incompetence of the monarchy both from the King and the Queen and the public rage that built to a crescendo. It tells how Marie was tried, convicted, and scapegoated in the public eye by the press of that time. This documentary leaves you with the feeling that a great injustice was done to Marie and her family. Although she was not by any means portrayed as an angel, she probably did not deserve the punishments forced upon her. A very enjoyable well done documentary, especially for people who are interested in history.
