La princesse de Montpensier (Bertrand Tavernier, Jean Cosmos, Madame de La Fayette, François-Olivier Rousseau)
Starring: Mélanie Thierry, Lambert Wilson, Grégoire Leprince-Ringuet, Gaspard Ulliel, Raphaël Personnaz
My thoughts on this film: While this is not what I would usually consider to be excellent, I really liked the history therein, and I also related to the love story - it was not the usual mushy, romantic, teary film, but rather something very real nowadays, a woman who believed her true love felt the same way, but as soon as someone better (with more money) came along, he turned his back on her.
I believe this superb drama set in the 16th century is a unique movie worth seeing!
