She was the daughter of a King, the sister of a King, the wife of a King... and the lover of an enemy. August 1572 - France is torn apart in bitter religious wars. Marguerite know as Margot, is proud and beautiful; the Catholic sister of King Charles IX, she is forced to marry the Protestant Henri de Navarre in an effort to reconcile her native France. Six days after the wedding, the infamous St Bartholomew's Day massacre takes place, encouraged by Margot's mother, the ruthless and scheming Catherine de Medici. Thousands of Protestants are brutally murdered, but one of them, La Mole who is badly wounded, knocks on Margot's door in desperation.
She takes him in and, for the first time in her life, she falls in love...with the enemy.

Unexpectedly Good - Queen Margot review by ll

Spoiler Alert

A historical drama based on fact. Wonderful costumes and scenes albeit some scenes rather gory. Painted a fascinating picture of court intrigue and struggles for power amongst medieval French nobility.

Gothic - Queen Margot review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

A strange compliment but this film has Possibly the best film trailer ever, its a tiny masterpiece in itself. The whole film is vivid, intense, dramatic, and melodramatic in a good way The whole crew deserves credit as its very authentic looking and as a former film extra myself, i noticed that the extras have been given some direction too. some films, especially historical ones loose by the extras looking like they are waiting for a bus!

Isabel Adjani is a good choice as the powerless pawn in a deadly game, who still manages to have a personality. This film converted me to the amazingness of Virna Lisi , wow but she is terrifying with her sick self hatred. Also jean hughes anglade , he is fantastic in this, very wild and edgy. This film comes closer than most to an actual feel of the time its set in , which is quite some achievement as i find more and more that historical film and tv has a ridiculously patronising habit of adding modern sensibilities, they seem unable to represent people that are not neurotic or sentimental.
