Marie Antoinette

Oops, I was supposed to blog about the Viktor & Rolf collection for H&M the first day it hit stores, but I thought it was for tomorrow! Never mind, I was way too busy today anyways. On a positive note, I finally got around to watch Marie Antoinette and I LOVED it!

I didn't have much expectation when I went, especially for the plot. But this is possibly one of the only film I've watched that didn't have much of a storyline, but I didn't fall asleep in. Why? Because I had to keep watch of the luxuries around: the Versailles, the hair & makeup, the people, the scenaries and of course, the neverending supply of gorgeous gowns.

While it seems like Kirsten Dunst just had to act like a cheerful, ditzy Queen, there was actaully a whole lot more to it. Her fustration with her annoying husband, the pressure from everyone to conceive a boy, the need to get along with the French court, and lastly, the calmness when she faced the angry French people -Kirsten Dunst acted all these out marvelously.

In the film, Marie Antoinette had an affair with the Swedish diplomat, who was so much cuter than her husband. (He was so cute he ended up being one of the few things my friend remembered from the film!)

Kirsten Dunst looked SO much more fabulous on screen.


I felt drunk after watching the film -from all the colours and beautiful scenes. Everything looked prettier on the walk home!


For those who love the art of this film as much as I did, go to the official Marie Antoinette website to download the desktop wallpapers. They'll make your laptop look just as pretty as the film!

Everyone should have watched the film by now, what did you guys think of it?

I loved the movie but still wasn't convinced that Kirsten Dunst was right for the role. A French actress or at least a less commercial 'Bring it on-esque' one would have made it much better- for me at least.
On a more positive note, the outfits were gorgeous. I was drooling for the beginning to the end. Just lovely...

Kirsten Dunst should not be labeled a commercial actress just because she starred in some teen movies...she has also performed very well in arty films - notable Virgin Suicides - directed by Sofia Coppola - which is why Sofia chose her to star in her new film...duh

i agree with you completely! the story wasn't very good(and i've heard it wasn't like that at all) but for an art/fashion freak like me, the costumes/scenery/shots just make it all up! (i especially loved the dresses at her birthday and at the theater where she made everyone clap)

i think the movie was perfect. really loved it. the soundtrack is countinuosly repeating on my ipod. i have that movie poster - it looks sooo cool in my bedroom :)
sofia coppola is amongst my favourite directors - i think her aesthetics and sensibility are remarcable. kirsten dunst is perfect for the role, and she is not a "teen-movie" actress at all - you should whatch her work more closely before leaving suchs comments.

I really loved the movie and the whole "do what you want, have fun, party till the break of dawn" idea along with the whole formalness of the court. The clothes were gorgeous and so were the shoes. Did you catch the blue Converses?

If you read the Vouge issue that has Kiersten on the cover, there is a real interesting article about the real Marie Antoinette in there.

I pretty much disliked the story, it was pretty bad. The only thing keeping me awake were the colors, clothes, and Jamie Dornan (ie the cute guy). The only real interesting part of the story was when they flashed the converse for a split second. Movie wise, Virgin Suicides was much better.

I have to watch the film. I´m Austrian and this is part of our history. Even heard the score and it sounds fantastic.

I was disappointed. I loved Sofia Coppola's other movies. Yes, the scenery and costumes were great, but I need more than that to keep my interest for 2 hours. It felt pretty shallow.

I can't wait to see the movie but it premieres here in Sweden on the 17th of November, so just a couple more days of waiting :P

Something I find really funny is that the movie is rated PG-13 in the US whilst it's rated G here :D

I completely agree with you about the plot being boring, but the fashion and visual aspects being so beautiful that you feel compelled to watch. On another note, why do people keep saying it should have been a French actress? It is acting, so many actors/actresses portray a different race or nationality in their roles. And btw, Marie Antoinette was Austrian-not French.
