  • Leave it to Rohmer, now 82, to find a way to bend current technique to the service of a vision of the past that is faithful to both architectural glories and commanding open spaces of the city as it was more than two centuries ago.

  • Seldom has the elegant past of 18th century royal life married modern filmmaking with the grace and sophistication of Eric Rohmer's L'anglaise et le duc.

    August 2, 2002 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Nothing short of a technical marvel and a ravishing movie to look at.

    July 26, 2002 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Whenever the subtleties of political morality get a bit overbearing, there's a respite in the painterly streets of Paris, where, we are reminded, the past was another city, strange and resistant to present-day adornments.

Audience Reviews for The Lady and the Duke

  • Apr 15, 2010
    Period piece misses the mark. The film makers probably realized it was a disaster but knew someone would always be interested in period pieces..so they took their chances. Not worth the effort to find.
