"Thrillingly Savage!" - Time Out New York
Newly Restored! France 1572. During an uneasy break in the war of religions, Catholic King Charles IX concludes a marriage of state between his sister Margot (Isabelle Adjani) and the Protestant Hugenot King Henry of Navarre (Daniel Auteuil). This high octane adaptation of Alexander Dumas' novel begins in fifth gear and never lets up, plunging hip-deep in history and into a dizzying array of characters, with passionate performances and a horrific staging of the St. Bartholomew's Massacre.
