The second part of the costume drama shows Angélique (Michèle Mercier) on a course for revenge. First she has the monk killed who had accused her former husband of sorcery. After some adventures with the bandits of Nicolas (Giuliano Gemma), she makes the acquaintance of a young poet (Jean-Louis Trintignant). Attempting to restore her former rank, the ex-countess becomes a successful business woman, introducing a trendy drink called chocolate to the public. But when she gets closer to the king, she finds out that the former conspirators against his majesty are still powerful. Her best defense might be a new marriage, but her intended husband is not willing to propose it...
I liked the sequel less than the first movie, because that one had developed the story carefully, while the sequel is a bit rushed and the characters seem to change spontaneously, whatever he script demands. Angélique falls in and out of love every day with a different guy, it seems, and her two children are treated a bit careless as well by the writers. Still good entertainment, though, because we get good action scenes with the bandits, funny moments for example with the captain of the guard, great actors anyway. I voted 8/6/7/6/6 for the 5 movies of the series.
