Palais royal! (2005)
Lady Di a la francaise
A great reinvention of the story of life and death of lady Diana Spencer. It takes place in imaginary French-speaking country of Western Europe. after the accidental death of the king his younger son has to take his place which makes his wife - a speech therapist Armelle, the potential queen. The current queen, francophone re-incarnation of Queen Elizabeth II (minus UGLY part), played by magnificent Catherine Deneuve, is not sure that this plain-looking awkward woman can bear the royal duties with dignity and clearly doesn't care about her. After series of misadventures, Armelle feels like she doesn't fit in the royal world and when she discovers her husband adultery, she decides to take revenge. She'll show them all who is the real queen of hearts! This comedy makes you laugh and cry. Catherine Deneuve looks stunning and parades in a real fashion show of outfits, wearing them with truly royal grace. The parallels with Lady Di story are in-your-face, but rather charming, because they are put in the continental French-speaking milieu.
the most disastrous HP movie so far
the plot lines that have been dropped for sakes of visual effects are so many, that this film becomes a mere suggestion of what is described in the book. I would call it "the sketch or outline for those who didn't read Goblet of Fire". That's what happens when one tries to squeeze the book of 734 pages into one 2,5 hour film. I think they REALLY could use the experience of Kill Bill and make it in two parts. Hope they will not make the same mistake with the Order of Phoenix.
oh, and by the way, Fleur is soooooo plain! I mean just a totally regular girl, whereas she is supposed to be a stunning beauty. The death of Cedrick is shown in a very casual way.
