Trivia

Count Fersen and Marie Antoinettes love affair went on for the rest of their lives. Whether or not it was consummated like it was in the film is up for speculation. But Louis XVI was very fond of Fersen and most likely knew of the affair but did nothing to stop it. Fersen helped organize a failed escape plan for the royal family after they were taken to Paris. He mourned the queen after she was beheaded. See more »

Goofs

As Mercy lectures Marie on offering meats to Louis's hunting party, she offers him a plate of macarons. Macarons were served at Louis XV's court, but not at Louis XVI's court. And the macarons Marie offers Mercy (filling between two cookies) didn't exist until the 1830s. See more »

beautiful scenery and costumes, terrible movie
1 February 2007 | by See 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.
