Marie Antoinette

DVD - 2006

Rate this:
Her name has become synonymous with the French monarchy and all its excesses, but there is more to the story of Marie Antoinette than the simplistic tale of how a frivolous sovereign helped provoke the uprising that became the French Revolution. She was, in fact, a tender-hearted, complex woman, whose tragic awakening came too late to save her from the guillotine. This film traces her journey from the splendors of her childhood in the palaces of the mighty Austro-Hungarian Empire to her final hours in a squalid French prison cell.

This is the story of two teenagers who inevitably become the last rulers of France's 1000-year-old monarchy. The documentary is a well done, informative and comprehensive review of Marie Antoinette's life and the French Revolution. I recommend this PBS DVD.

I agree it wasn't the best one PBS has put out, but it was still very informative. Good if your doing a project!

Very well done, definitely worth the watch. Although because of everything that happened in her life and how long the movie was it seemed rushed at times. it would have been much better as a series.
