This was never released in the US, which you know is a bad sign… Sophie Marceau stars as an aspiring actress in 17th century France. She joins with Moliere’s acting troupe and goes on to become a leading figure on the stage and a favorite of the king. All sounds good, but it’s relatively tedious — I found myself wishing it would all wrap up sooner than it did. The costumes are quite pretty, but not overly exciting. In French.
I love these reviews of costume gems you all come up with! But how do any of us go about finding these films to watch for ourselves? Especially if it’s out of print??
