Beautiful production in all aspects.
26 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a really beautifully produced bio of Marie Antoinette. I saw it when it aired on PBS and rented it later to view again.

Blair Brown does a wonderful narration, and the direction of images and information is marvelous. One quibble is that the French historians are only translated in subtitle, not audio; so this might bother some folks.

This is infinitely better than the slap-dash Bio: Marie Antoinette, Queen of Versailles; BUT that one has lovely, lingering shots of Marie's Shepherdess village which is only shown here at a distance here. Since that village has really fascinating, fanciful architecture (like early Disney or OZ), that (otherwise lousy) bio is worth seeing, too.

Get them both, watch the bad one first, then settle in to watch this one, for a really complete, interesting, top notch bio pic from PBS.
