La Reine Margot

The intrigues, violence and sexual promiscuity of 16th-century France are uncompromisingly portrayed in Patrice Chereau's adaptation of Alexandre Dumas's epic novel. In 1572 Marguerite de Valois is forced into a political marriage with Henri de Navarre in an attempt to end the wars of religion. But Margot's vacillating brother, dominated by his unscrupulous mother, Catherine de'Medici, orders the killing of all protestants. The St Bartholomew's Day massacre forces Queen Margot to choose between her husband and her family - and gives her new a lover, the gallant La Mole.
