I also often enjoy watching French movies (which is also a good practice to expand what little French I know). Today, I'd like to talk about two historical movies in particular that I would like to recommend.
|La Reine Margot (Queen Margot|
While taking many creative licenses and straying from the book in certain ways, it is nevertheless a beautifully done film that brings the French Royal life and the intrigue and dangers of the court to life and paints it in bright and bold colors. Of course, it is also a story of love, passion and sensuality. The performances by beautiful Isabelle Adjani as Margot and the charismatic Daniel Auteuil as Henri of Navarre are especially strong and evocative, I believe.

(While The Princess Montpensier is available on Nexflix, La Reine Margot, unfortunately is not.)
What are some of your favorite historical movies? I'd love some recommendations.
