THE PRINCESS OF MONTPENSIER
La princesse de Montpensier
2010, Sundance Selects Films, 139 min, France, Dir: Bertrand Tavernier

It is France 1562, and heiress Marie de Mézières (Melanie Thierry) loves the young Duc de Guise, known infamously as “Scarface” (Gaspard Ulliel), but is instead forced to marry the Prince of Montpensier for political reasons. When the new princess is sequestered in an isolated castle in the countryside, she becomes caught up in a violent, passionate rivalry between the many men who wish to claim her as their prize. In French with English subtitles.

"Tavernier's helming here is as elegantly fluid as his best work, weaving historical weft with private warp with the same seamlessness he achieved in LIFE AND NOTHING BUT." – Variety.


Screening format: 35mm
