I. Le Roi de fer (The Iron King)
II. La Reine étranglée (The Strangled Queen)
III. Les Poisons de la couronne (The Poisons of the Crown)
IV. La Loi des mâles (The Royal Succession)
V. La Louve de France (The She-Wolf of France)

VII. Quand un Roi perd la France (When a King Loses France)

Les adieux à la reine (Farewell, My Queen) 2011


Farewell, My Queen (2011) - IMDb

Diane Kruger reigns supreme as French queen Marie Antoinette | Mail Online
Quote:
Set in Versailles in July 1789, the script provides an inside look of the palace and Marie Antoinette's relationship with her entourage as the French Revolution rapidly approaches.
One lady-in-waiting in particular, Sidonie Laborde, supposedly became quite intimate with the queen.

As much as I would like to see this, I can't help but think - "Another Marie Antoinette movie?"

But hey, I hope its better than the one with Kirsten Dunst. That movie had beautiful costumes but poor storyline.

"Marie-Antoinette" with Kirsten Dunst was a nice costumed parody of the epoch with nearly happy ending,it's interesting if this movie will expose the last tragical days or weeks of the Queen.

"Farewell, My Queen" - a French drama about Marie Antoinette

'Farewell, My Queen' is exquisite account of life at Versailles on eve of revolution Passionate entanglements in 'Farewell, My Queen'
Quote:
"Farewell, My Queen" offers an intoxicating opportunity to eavesdrop on history, to be a fly on the wall at the great palace at Versailles as an old order starts its slow-motion collapse into the dustbin of history. As directed by France'sveteran Benoît Jacquot, "Farewell, My Queen" has a potent emotional component as well, involving the tangled emotional lives of three beautiful women: Marie Antoinette (Diane Kruger), the queen in question; Sidonie Laborde (Léa Seydoux), the monarch's worshipful young servant; and Gabrielle de Polignac (Virginie Ledoyen), the queen's special favorite.
Wikipedia's article on the film.

I've heard some magnificent reviews on the film from my French friends and hope to watch it myself in a couple of days, when it finally arrives to our cinemas.
Then again, Benoit Jacquot is a very good director and the cast is perfect, so I expected nothing less.

There's an old movie titled Diane, about Diane De Poitiers, the long-time mistress of Henri II.

Anyone ever see it?
It stars Lana Turner and Roger Moore.

Catherine de Médicis and her son,Henri Duc d'Anjou (later Henri III) pop up from time to time in the lavish 2011 French movie 'The Princess of Montpensier' set in France during the last years of the reign of Charles IX of France.

The Duc de Guise,Cardinal de Guise,Duc de Montpensier also have ample onscreen time.

I saw "Diane" on TV many, many years ago. I loved it. I have been trying to get hold of a copy on DVD or VHS for ages but it is currently unavailable.

A couple of months ago I visited The Museum of Style Icons in Newbridge, County Kildare, Ireland. Among the hundreds of theatrical / movie costumes on display was a beautiful navy velvet dress and skull cap (with beads / pearls) which Lana Turner wore when she portrayed "Diane".

I really hope so, An Ard Ri. I have been checking Amazon regularly for the past 3 years but to no avail.

The film isn't that old having been made in 1956. When you consider that loads of movies from the 1930's and 1940's are easily available on DVD it makes it all the more frustrating.

Maybe we could email the distributors and see if a release is planned,its odd that it hasn't,maybe there's not the demand?

It is odd given Lana Turner's high profile as an actress in the 1950's.

BUT, would you believe it, An Ard Ri ....... ?

Look what I just found on Amazon .com

Amazon.com: Diane [VHS]: Lana Turner, Pedro Armendáriz, Roger Moore, Marisa Pavan, Cedric Hardwicke, Torin Thatcher, Taina Elg, John Lupton, Henry Daniell, Ronald Green, Sean McClory, Geoffrey Toone, Robert H. Planck, David Miller, John McSweeney Jr.

Normally, I would be jumping for joy as I still have and frequently use my video recorder but, because the source is Amazon.com and not Amazon.co.uk , I'm very much afraid that the video format, NTSC , won't play on European video recorders. ??

Also, would you look at the price for those that are supplied to international buyers. ? Scandalous !!

$97.00 for a DVD?

I very much doubt it's made of solid gold, so why make the price so high?
