Storyline

The night of August 24, 1572, is known as the Massacre of St. Bartholomew. In France a religious war is raging. In order to impose peace a forced wedding is arranged between Margot de Valois, sister of the immature Catholic King Charles IX, and the Hugenot King Henri of Navarre. Catherine of Medici maintains her behind-the-scenes power by ordering assaults, poisonings, and instigations to incest. Written by Oliver 'Asana' Duex <asana@popgate.tng.oche.de>

Trivia

The scene between Margot and La Mole, where they stand outdoors wrapped in nothing but a red cloak, was included for the American release even though it had not appeared in the original cut. The American distributors had insisted on the relationship between the two characters being more substantial (the romance was to become the focal point for the American marketing campaign).

Goofs

In the scene where La Mole and Coconnas are being dragged, alive, from a cart full of dead people at a mass burial site, you can clearly see a 'dead body' in the background blink its eyes. See more »

Quotes

La Môle: Promise me something. They say death always took your lovers. They say you lock their hearts in gold boxes around your bed.
Margot: They do? What else? That at night, wearing a mask, I roam the city, looking for love?
La Môle: One day you'll know who you really are. Promise you won't forget me... the one you shouldn't have loved.
Margot: I promise.

A breathtaking cinema!
8 September 2002 | by See all my reviews

In France in 1572,Queen Margot(brilliant Isabelle Adjani),a catholic,marries Henri of Navarre(Daniel Auteuil),a protestant,in an arranged marriage that neither wants.Two religious camps hate each other and the war is about to break out.The cinematography in "La Reine Margot" is amazing-it's dark and grainy,and the set design is very good! The acting is excellent-Adjani is really believable,it's also really nice to see Asia Argento,the daughter of famous Italian horror master Dario Argento in a small role!The film is packed with bloody scenes-there is a lot of violence,rape,sex,nasty throat slashings etc.-definitely not for the squeamish!A must-see!
