Marie Antoinette

Image 1 / 2

This is the story of Marie-Antoinette, who on October 16, 1793 was taken to the Place de la Concorde where her head was cut off. Today, as in her own century, Marie-Antoinette is the object of fantasies, seen in an array of different roles: a pre-romantic teenager as depicted by Hollywood, a sex-obsessed lesbian, an Austrian spy, a queen indifferent to the suffering of her people. But behind all these interpretations, what is the true story of France's last queen, adored by the whole of France on her arrival in Versailles before becoming the incarnation of a reviled regime? Shot in Versailles, this captivating film presents the real story of the last years of a monarchy both absolute and moribund.
