A wide-ranging, energetic period piece tracing the rise of the Protestant Henry of Navarre as he goes from battlefield warrior to France's beloved King Henri IV. Director Jo Baier's epic is a classically entertaining adventure, albeit one with more than a little bloodshed and frequent bawdy sexual interludes. In late 16th-century France, Catholics and Protestant Huguenots were at war. Seemingly seeking peace, the French dowager queen, Catherine de Medici summons Henry to her court to have him marry her daughter, uniting the two warring factions. However, the Catholics slaughter the Protestant wedding guests in what became known as the St. Bartholomew's Day massacre and Henry-now married-must use all his guile to both stay alive and maneuver for the throne Written by Palm Springs Internation Film Festival

19 January 2014 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

it is far to be a revelation. stylized story, not extraordinary acting, battle and love scenes and the noble purpose to present in decent manner one of fundamental personalities of Modern French history. common biographic movie, without great ambition but remarkable for few scenes who reflects the roots of political crisis, it is a French past page in clothes of German. and without be impressive, the result is far to be boring or slice of time waist, sure, it could be better. but the performance of Julien Boisselier , charming and not complicated, transforming the lead character in a form of sketch, is a good thing and inspired spice for an easy film.
