About the Film:
Directed by Patrice Chéreau. 1994. 144 mins, French with English subtitles.
When it was released I 1994, Patrice Chéreau’s Queen Margot, based on the 1845 historical novel by Alexandre Dumas, garnered the Cannes Jury Prize, five César Awards and accolades for Isabelle Adjani’s remarkable portrayal of Marguerite de Valois. When the young Catholic Queen “Margot” is forced to wed the Protestant Huguenot King Henri de Navarre (Daniel Auteuil), it is a political maneuver intended to reconcile the French, torn apart by religious wars. When Margot tries to escape with a new lover, she finds herself imprisoned by her powerful and ruthless family. Game of Thrones has nothing on this lush 16th-century royal saga, described (quite rightly) by Variety as “a frenzy of religious conflict, personal betrayal, raw passion and enough killing for all three parts of The Godfather."
