La reine Margot (1994)

 


 

The night of August 24, 1572, is known as the Massacre of St. Bartholomew. In France a religious war is raging. In order to impose peace a forced wedding is arranged between Margot de Valois, sister of the immature Catholic King Charles IX, and the Hugenot King Henri of Navarre. Catherine of Medici maintains her behind-the-scenes power by ordering assaults, poisonings, and instigations to incest.

Catherine de M├ędicis, the power behind the Catholic throne of her son Charles IX, arranges an apparently peace-making marriage between her unwilling daughter Margot and the Protestant Henri de Navarre. The wedding soon turns into a massacre of the visiting Protestants and Henri\’s life is only saved by Margot\’s intercession. As intrigue, murder and adulterous relationships multiply in the Court a strange but strong loyalty emerges between the apparently ill-matched couple.

    I can’t seem to find the actor who played Henry III (the one with the dark long hair who always had an devilish look???)

    Thanks!!

    Queen Margot is a great, great film, and lacks a superb DVD release. Come on criterion, add this to your library of superb films. Give us La Margot Reine in all it’s Uncut and remastered glory!

    I AM, because I want to be.

    Amazed to see such high marks for this lurid mess of a film. I heard a lot about it back when it was released (both good and bad) and a number of friends have recommended it to me over the years. Now, I can’t say I wasn’t entertained at least half the time: I like hot girls and spurting gore as much as the next mouth-breather, so I appreciated the emphasis on good old-fashioned "production value". But take away the exploitation stuff, and you’ve got an incoherent wreck of a film. The performances were either ludicrously exaggerated (most of the Catholic nobility) or a matter of vapidity coasting by on good looks alone (the usually excellent Adjani and her ill-starred lover).

    You can kind of make out the legit drama that’s supposed to move everything along: the strange poisoner/executioner/fortune-teller who presides like fate over the chain of coincidence that ties past to present; the struggle between genuine faith and mere religious loyalty that motivates the otherwise senseless reversals of character; and the complex web of insight, secrecy and ignorance that the various characters scheme from within.

    But none of it works. Everything interesting is buried beneath piles of breathlessly heaving bosoms and artfully denuded corpses. It plays like some kind of awful red velvet vampire fantasy scenario, just without the actual vampires.

    I had to watch this movie for a French class. And I don’t know if it was me trying to understand it it my horrible French or what, but I really found her husband to be the more interesting man. I know that the real Margot and Henri never got along, ,but i couldn’t help wishing that she would have fallen in love with him instead of La Mole. Any one else feel the same?

    This is coming from someone that has seen ALOT of good French movies.

    What’s up with the 7.4 rating? This deserves at most a 6.0…

    Just watched this film on youtube, much has been said about the fact that Isabelle Adjani was 39/40 when she made this film. Just found out that the actress who played her bushy haired sidekick was 38 at the time. Just looked at some present day photos of her and she is also looking great for 53, minus her ginger bushy hair.

    1 Who wanted Admiral Coligny dead and why?

    2 Who was Henriette? Since she wouldnt leave with Margot to Navarre- it seemed more like she was a ‘court confidant’ or assistant-instead of a good friend;

    3 What is it that makes Hannible and La Mole suddenly bond as beloved brothers?

    4 Was the guy with the constant smirk one of the royal brothers?

    Why is this film called ‘Queen’ Margot? At no stage of the film is Margot queen of France, nor is there any indication she would ever be queen… unless Navarre was a kingdom of its own… I thought in those days France was unified. (unlike Germany)

    How did Margot become Queen?

    Another thing I didn’t understand, why would a person that bangs a stranger in a dark alley form such an emotional bond with that stranger? It just doesn’t make any sense psychologically. It that supposed to be the ‘romantic’ part? Because me and my girlfriend found it unbelievable.

    I watched this film twice and I found it very good. Unfortunately I had bad luck, because every time I watched the shortened version (138 min.). Could anyone, who saw both: the cut and the un-cut version tell me what scenes are missing in the shortened version? Thanks.


    I guess some like it hot, but I prefer classical music.

    I actually saw this movie in the theatre when it came out in the US and again a few years after. I just watched it again on the Sundance Channel. I could have sworn there was some closing text before the end credits that spoke to what happened after with Margot and Henri. I can’t remember how long – maybe a paragraph or two. It was left out of the version I watched tonight.

    I know what happens but I’m interested in what that text says. If anyone knows and wouldn’t mind typing it out in a reply, I’d appreciate it.

    Hopefully, one day the real version will come out on DVD.

    thanks

    Isabelle Adjani, the lady who played Margot was nearly 40 years old when she filmed this! She doesn’t look a day over 20! That’s amazing to me…

    I’m really surprised that people compliment her on her looks. I couldn’t get over the fact that her face looks like the recipient of excessive plastic surgery. She looks completely unnatural, like a piece of plastic. I watched Bon Voyage recently as well, and she looked exactly the same, and again, just like plastic.

    In earlier films (say, L’histoire d’Adèle H.) she looks more natural, so this isn’t a question of someone being born with that surgery "look".

    Why has no one else brought this up?

    Please don’t say she’s all natural. There’s NO WAY! Look at her young and then look at her older. Her later nose looks two steps away from Michael Jackson’s.

    I did like the movie, though, but watched without subtitles, so I didn’t get every line, being French Canadian and not French from France(plus the Italian accents didn’t help much.). Y NOUS accusent de mal prononcer, esti!

    I don’t understand why there were such sex scenes which are nowhere described in the book.I mean i just read it and after i finished it i watched the film.It wasn’t that bad but i think the sex was way too much not because they were that much explicit but they were nowhere in the book:P

    whatever…has anyone else have an opinion on this??

    The time to hide is over. The time to regret is gone. The time to live is now.

    When the cold hearted assassin breaks down, he is dumping bodies, and he sees the body of Margot’s lover with his arms in a certain position.

    Now, this occurs over a century after the Molay incident, when the surviving Templars had to go underground and initiate their "grand hailing of distress" signal, which every Templar must obey. I wonder if that is the signal that Margot’s lover was giving, and that he and the assassin were members of the secret organization.

    Dumas lived in a day when he may have been privy to this. Perhaps he was a Mason (Templar) himself.

    It was the only explanation I could give for the assassin’s turn around. I don’t think he could have just automatically repented. I think there had to be some sort of trigger, and this seems the most logical explanation.

    I’m guessing there’ll be a lot of response on this. Looking for intelligent comments, or perhaps comments from someone who knows all the signs of the Masons, and what they think.

    This is an extremely well made film. However it is disturbingly realistic in it’s portrayal of violence. A good film but I couldn’t stomach watching it again.

    What’s with French movies?

    What was the point of adding the scene where her brothers( disgusting) pull up her dress and reveal her bare bottom? It added nothing to do movie. Just nasty.

    I’m not one of those stupid Americans who gasp at nudity, I just think it is pointless.

    Has anyone observed?? How tricky in this film faith was… Book about Hounting which was formely owned by de Moley, finally become a key to his death… Whole story with his catholic friend. Also how de Moley become a lover with Margot…like thin spider web, something is protecting him against the faith. For me whole movie is just filled with transcendental questions. It’s not only historical movie.There is something deeper inside…

    I’ve read somewhere that the English subtitles on the NTSC version are permanent.  Is this true, and if so, is there any Region 1 version in which they are optional?

    I’d really like to be able to turn them off…

    Now, I’m not saying that a Hollywood adaptation is going to be made, or, for that matter should be made. But, let’s say that a miracle would happen. Good script, good director…

    Whom would you cast in "Queen Margot"?

    Here’s my ideal cast. I based my choices partly on how the characters really looked, partly on how Dumas described them, partly on how Dumas described their characteristics. I ignored the age factor, but most adaptations do.

    Margot: Catherine Zeta-Jones

    Henri de Navarre: Hugh Jackman

    La Môle: Brad Pitt

    Coconnas: Ben Affleck (Yes, I really think that could work. He’s big, and with the right makeup and everything…)

    Charles IX: Edward Norton

    Catherine de Médicis: Faye Dunaway

    Guise: Vincent Cassel (isn’t exactly Hollywood, but he’s getting close. And I think he looks perfect for the part)

    Alençon: Christian Bale

    Anjou: John Cucack

    Maurevel: Viggo Mortensen

    Charlotte of Sauve: Rebecca Romijn

    Henriette de Nevers: Renee Zellweger

    René: Christopher Lee

    de Mui: Sean Bean

    Caboche: John Rhys-Davies

    What do you think of it? What are your suggestions?

    I was given this film on dvd as a birthday present but I haven’t watched it yet as I’m a little reluctant due to its reputation for blood and gore. However I also feel really compelled to watch it.

    I was wondering if someone who’s seen it would be willing to let me know what to expect? I would rather know what’s going to happen so I can be prepared for it rather than shocked.

    Thanks
