Rating: 2/5 -- Everything's scenery, even the story. Full Review
Daily Telegraph (UK)

Rating: 4/5 -- That's a lot of plot-and plotting-to sort out, and while Chéreau and co-writer Danièle Thompson occasionally fail to explicate it clearly, the center of the film holds strong. Full Review

...Adjani, rapturously photographed by Philippe Rousselot, combines Lillian Gish's silent-screen inner strength with sex bomb packaging...

Rating: 4/5 -- Among its many other accomplishments, 'Queen Margot' deserves a special prize for its inventive use of poisons - one receives "death by book."

...Rich and full of verve....Adjani still burns a hole in the screen...

Product Description:

This acclaimed film presents the epic 16th-century saga of Margot de Valois (Isabelle Adjani) and her tragic arranged marriage to Henri of Navarre (Daniel Auteuil). In order to create an alliance between the Protestants and the Catholics, Margot is betrothed to Henri, one of the leaders of the French Protestants. Margot, despite her initial hostility, eventually becomes Henri's main ally in a convoluted and conspiratorial court. However, determined not to consummate her relationship with Henri, Margot takes a Protestant lover (Vincent Perez) and during the St. Bartholomew's Night Massacre, in which the Catholics slaughter the Protestants, helps him escape. The events that follow change not only Margot's life but the course of French history.


Production Notes:

  • Rated BBFC 18 by the British Board of Film Certification.

    One episode of D.W. Griffith's famed epic "Intolerance" (1916) also covers the St. Bartholomew's massacre, but from a different perspective -- that of the victims.
