Farewell, My Queen (in French)

Rating = B+

This movie shows three days in the well known story of the fall of Marie Antoinette (and Louis XVI of France) starting with the storming of the Bastille in July 1789. The three days are primarily shown from the viewpoint of the queen's (presumably fictional) official reader, named Sidonie Laborde. It is very well done.
