Storyline

Let Them Eat is a poetic and haunting journey which spans from the turbulent time of the French Revolution to present day. From the prison cell of the former queen of France, Marie Antoinette, to Bella, a woman who seems to be leading a parallel life with a deep connection to the former queen. Seamlessly drifting from present to past, each woman's story unfolds while both struggle to make peace with their past before one leaves the earth and the other can embrace her future. Laced within the story are beautiful spoken word poems which delve deep into the hearts and souls of our two heroines exposing their secret world of passion, lust, pain, love and triumph. This is a story of great courage, strength and ever-lasting love which bridges the two lives and the two women together forever. Written by Leslie Cottle

Memorable Marie
24 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let Them Eat fascinated me. As a movie-going historian and romantic, this film was custom made for me. Cottle is brilliantly obsessed with Antoinette's love life. That works fine. Realism and the interesting visits to her in prison before her head is lopped off are just wonderful. Although this is an art film from an Independent production house, the quality is there. This film captures the real story of a Queen of France who had it all. Or we think she had it all. The film shows how much she didn't have. The film feels just right even with a shorter than most time span of less than an hour. Religious fanatics, French nationals,and explosion fans will not like this film. Proudly will this film stay in my collection.
