This is a French film about the chaos in the Castle of Versailles during the French revolution in July 1789, as seen through the eyes of one of Marie Antoinette's servants. It's similar to "Downfall", though a lot more civilised. The chaos is more regal.
I was asked to watch this film by a close friend. I didn't really enjoy it. I find films that take place in royal palaces somehow unpleasant. The clothing, the mannerisms, everything. I'm not saying this is a bad film, it's just not for me.
