Haven't heard anything about the Diana one yet,but I don't think we'll see the Princely Family of Monaco at the world premier of the Grace movie

I think you're right, An Ard Ri.

I'm talking about the movies that's been made about them over the years. This isn't the first movie made about Princess Grace. There was a movie made years ago on the life of Princess Grace with actress Cheryl Ladd portraying Princess Grace. There have been several movies made about the Princess of Wales too.

I'm just not sure the royals are all that impressed by those past movies.

The only biographical films they would approve of would be those which were written, produced and directed by themselves. But that probably applies to any high-profile family, royal or not, which finds itself the unwelcome subject of a commercial film or docudrama, whether it be allegedly "biographical" or alarmingly "interpretive".

^I think they would also be okay with a movie that was adapted from a book that they approved of/liked.

I know the Queen liked the 'King's Speech', but I can't think of any other royal movies that have gotten the royal thumbs up.

I recently viewed the Cheryl Ladd film and noticed the credits acknowledge Princess Grace's cooperation in the realisation of the film(not these exact words). I guess this film wasn't a problem for the Grimaldi family because it ends at the point of Grace's marriage to Rainier and focuses mainly on Grace's career as an actress.

Actually Grace pulled every string possible trying to stop the Cheryl Ladd film but once she figured out she & her remaining Hollywood friends didnt have that power she went along with it in a limited way.

I generally think one should be careful with making films about these big and iconic people unless it's frightenly accurate or made a long, long time after the person has died. Olivier Dahan, the director, did a decent job with La Môme and it was a great biopic. Edith Piaf, however, has never been as "big" as Princess Grace and I think he's moving into a dangerous area with this film. That it's basically a fictional story doesn't make it better at all and I really fear that Grace will be portrayed wrong (that is even though I don't know much about her after she married Prince Rainier). Also, Nicole Kidman is a pretty decent actress, but I just can't picture her as Grace at all.

Piaf was just of one of the greatest singer in the world, but hey
I was first sceptical, but now I´m interested in the result.

Indeed, one of my own favourite singers, but if you asked people, I think more of them know Grace over Edith Piaf. She was not only an actress, she was an actress gone Princess, it's a fairytale story. Edith Piaf was a badass diva, sure, but Grace Kelly, I think, is still a "bigger" and more famous person.

I respectfully disagree, at least as far as non-English-speaking countries are concerned.

Edith Piaf was (and still is) a legend; her songs are known in pretty much every corner of the world. Ask any child here who is the voice behind "La Vie en rose" or "Non, je ne regrette rien" and you'll get a correct answer from 99% of them.

Not saying Grace wasn't a legend; she was and again, still is. But she was especially popular in the United States and English-speaking countries. Outside of those, some people (mainly, those interested in royalty) may remember her as the great actress who married a Prince and died tragically in a car accident - but I'd still say Edith Piaf is the far more popular and recognisable one. Her voice will live on when memories of Grace fade.

Well it might just be my own perception as a Dane. I doubt you'll find many kids here knowing who Piaf was, but maybe knowing the melody to 'Non, je ne regrette rien', 'La vie en rose' and perhaps 'l'Hymne à l'Amour'. I've known about Piaf since forever, but I doubt I would've until I got French in school had I not had French family.

I guess it differs from country to country.
Armenians are probably the biggest Francophiles out there and we love everything about French culture and especially the music.

I'd agree there,especially in Ireland.

Princess Grace is held in high regard,anything to do with her whether it be a jewellery collection or a movie will attract a lot of attention.

Has this film been released yet or shown at film festivals? I know the Grimaldis themselves have been critical of its inaccuracies and generally panned it but have there been any reviews by film critics?
