Trivia

The part of Louis XV was first offered to Alain Delon. Allegedly, he met Sofia Coppola for dinner and brought the American director a huge bouquet of flowers and explained he did not think this was the type of role his fans would appreciate him in. Privately it has been speculated the French icon did not have confidence in the young American director to do justice to a film on this period of French history. See more »

Goofs

A clip of sumptuous food also shows a fork whose design is wrong by around a century. Four-tined forks did not appear until around the 1830's and they did not really catch on until the 1870's. It is among the more common Hollywood historical props goofs because several popular silverware patterns named "Versailles" can be found in antique stores; however almost all of them were designed in the 1880's at a time of enthusiasm for all things fancy.

Quotes

Marie-Antoinette: [her first words to Du Barry] There are a lot of people at Versailles today.
Madame du Barry: Yes, there are.
Marie-Antoinette: [walking away] Those are my last words to that woman.

beautiful scenery and costumes, terrible movie
1 February 2007 | by cdwebdesignSee all my reviews

I had higher hopes for this movie, in that it would at the least have a somewhat captivating story. I did not laugh, cry, or feel any emotion whatsoever throughout this film. The actors and actresses were not bad at all, but rather the screenplay and direction were terrible. It was like a slow starting novel, where you read 30 pages and it's not quite entranced you yet, and you know that just around the corner your patience will pay off. However, in this version, you wait 2 hours for the payoff, and it never delivers. I felt suffocated by the film, and to be quite honest, the credits were a breath of fresh air. I would recommend this film to anyone devoid of emotion, or with an interest in silent films; you may as well turn off the sound. The clash between old and new, with the background music vs. the modern day soundtrack, was odd, to say the least, and the dialogue was worthless.
