An absolute masterpiece
7 September 2013 | by (France) – See all my reviews

L'allée du Roi based on Francoise Chandernagor magistral best seller, is probably one of the best productions ever made by the french television. This is not on my behalf some kind of nationalistic point of view at all. The fact is that nearly 20 years after its first presentation, this movie has kept all its freshness; it is also a very interesting way for those who are not familiar with the reign of Louis XIV and the slow access of the future Marquise of Maintenont, to the highest level of all in the french court by being the second wife of the king and then be part of major decisions of the king in foreign politics during the last years of his reign. I highly recommend this movie and please see it in french using English subtitles if you're not familiar with the language; any dubbed version would totally betray and spoil the efforts of the producers and the director to achieve that masterpiece.Also do read the book which has the same title and which a big event in the french literary circles at the time of its publication.
