Bertrand Tavernier is in top form with this gripping, superbly mounted drama set against the savage Catholic/Protestant wars that ripped France apart in the 16th Century. Marie de Marzieres' love for her dashing Cousin Henri de Guise is thwarted when her father's political ambitions force her into marraige with the well-conntected Philippe de Montpensier, whom she had never met.
