This movie is slow and boring. Then you think after sitting through the whole thing, that at the end you're going to finally get to see the climax, during the revolution but no.
The only good thing about this movie was the scenery at Versailles but even that was short. I have personally been there and I can say that they didn't show enough of the palace.
This was pretty hard to sit through but I did.I enjoy foreign films but I wouldn't recommend this one to others.

This was a beautiful film, but I can't help but think that the slander that followed Marie Antoinette from before she became queen to after her execution is still at work here. The book portrays a more human side to the queen – the movie reinforces the myth of a cruel and cold woman. Read the book and take the movie with a grain of salt.

The only reason I did not fall asleep was because of the beautiful costumes, and sets.

Gripping. They continued with their highly formal ceremony while the world around them was falling apart, and they continued until their heads rolled. They could have escaped, but chose to live in the style to which they were accustomed for just a short additional time.
Beautifully acted, magnificently staged. It haunted me until this moment, a day later.

Extremely disappointing. Slow, uneventful. Plus, if you are going to have subtitles, make sure the font color is not the same ad the background screen.
I so wanted to enjoy this movie, and couldn't wait for it to be over at the end.
