The Princess Of Montpensier Reviews

Eye for Film

The twisting narrative is rendered skilfully so that it is easy to follow even as allegiences and alliances shift, and there is plenty of space to revel in the complexity of the characters.

November 3, 2011

Manages to be that rare thing, a thoroughly modern-seeming period film that is confident that the story it's telling is compelling enough so as not to necessitate the addition of torturous contemporary parallels.

Digital Spy

The swashbuckling Guise, kindly Count, raging Philippe and swaggering Duke make the two-hours-plus runtime fly by.

It clips along with splendid locations and well-observed costumes and customs, displaying a sensibility and wit that never feel stuffy.

Both handsomely mounted and, for the most part, rousingly acted out.

Little White Lies

It's clear that veteran director Bertrand Tavernier has set out to show the potency and relevance of a classic love story and that period romance is by no means a dead genre. On this evidence, he has a point.

Bertrand Tavernier, in his 70th year, directs with the energy and panache of a much younger man.

Engaging and enjoyable French swashbuckler with superb fight sequences, a strong script and terrific performances from its excellent cast, though it does drag a little in the middle section.

An intelligent, historical epic with a vigorous modern sweep.

Guardian

It gallops along as elegantly and confidently as the horsemen we see in the opening scene - part bodice-ripper, part patrician soap opera, and part romantic tragedy - albeit a romantic tragedy of no very great resonance or depth.

The cross-vibrations between epochs are often felt, like little earth tremors. The acting is terrific.

Although a tad too long for its own good, there's enough intrigue - both political and romantic - and dashing swordplay to keep everyone happy.

Functions swimmingly as an ambiguous study of wrongly diverted passions.

Sky Movies

Occasionally sudsy but always watchable, director Bertrand Tavernier's adaptation of Madame de La Fayette's novel wears its two-hours plus running time surprisingly lightly.

Fan The Fire

It's played pretty straight (though Tavernier allows us a couple of wry laughs) and crucially it maintains the weight of a real drama, as opposed to feeling like a teen romance in a castle (which is essentially what it turns into).

Total Film

Robustly acted and dynamically photographed; Tavernier is equally adept at directing intimate encounters as choreographing savage battles, conveying the sense of a society tearing itself apart.

The production is lavish and impressive, and the costumes are one small part of the meticulous attention to period recreation.

The movie is intelligently realized, but Tavernier doesn't quite find the passion that drives his characters.
