An abridged version of the film was released as Queen Margot in North America , and in the United Kingdom under its original French title. During the late 16th century, Catholics and Protestant Huguenots are fighting over political control of France, which is ruled by the neurotic, hypochondriac King Charles IX , and his mother, Catherine de' Medici , a scheming power player. Catherine decides to make an overture of goodwill by offering up her daughter Margot in marriage to Henri de Bourbon , a prominent Huguenot and King of Navarre , although she also schemes to bring about the notorious St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre of , when thousands of Protestants are slaughtered. A book with pages painted with arsenic is intended for Henri but instead causes the slow, agonizing death of King Charles.

The night of August 24, , is known as the Massacre of St. In France a religious war is raging. Catherine of Medici maintains her behind-the-scenes power by ordering assaults, poisonings, and instigations to incest. French dynastic history in the late 16th century does not seem a promising subject for a film, but Patrice Chereau, a prominent French stage director, has teased out some personal drama out of the larger historical picture, and provided a vivid and absorbing tale.

The story itself is adapted from Alexandre Dumas' novel, which is a pretty highly colored piece to begin with. Chereau theatrically plasters the set with blood and gore, and we are left in no doubt that an atrocity has occurred the St Bartholomew's day massacre of the Hugenots.

The mendacious Queen Mother, Catherine di Medici, and her weak-minded son, Charles IX, seem to have set it off to deal with the protestant problem without realizing how bad it might get. In all this horror is the rather cute tale of the relationship between two disparate personalities thrown together in marriage, Catherine's daughter Margo and Henry of Navarre later Henry IV of France, and one of its better kings. Yet they reach an accommodation and finish up friends.

Both have other lovers and both respect that but neither can prevent the lovers from coming to sticky ends. It's always a bit hard to assess the acting when you are relying on sub-titles if only the French didn't speak so fast but Isabella Adjani at the age of 40 pulled off a remarkable job and had me convinced she really was a spoilt, willful little nymphomaniac in her early 20's.

Daniel Auteuil was also excellent as the unprepossessing but very intense and quick-thinking Henry. Virna Lisi, a sex symbol in her earlier film career, made a good villainess as Catherine. Most of the other principals seem to have been chosen for their looks by rent-an-ego casting though Jean-Huges Anglade was suitably pathetic as the doomed King Charles.

The film fades a bit in the second half, but it's still not a bad story, if at times a bit difficult to follow. Sign In. Keep track of everything you watch; tell your friends. Full Cast and Crew.
