Storyline

In 1721, the Regent of France, wanting to seal the peace with Spain, offers to the Spanish King, a marriage between their respective heirs: Louis XV, age 11, and Maria Anna Victoria, the 4-year-old Spanish Infanta (princess). The Regent of France also offers to marry his daughter, Mademoiselle deè Montpensier, 12, to the Prince of Asturias, the 14-year-old heir apparent to the Spanish throne. Madrid responds enthusiastically to both proposals, and the ceremonies are promptly organized. The exchange of the princesses is to take place with great pomp on a small island, in the river bordering the two countries. Everything has been done to expect the best of the children, but nothing will proceed as planned.

Enjoyable but unexciting period piece
2 May 2019 | by CabbageCustardSee all my reviews

This movie focuses on, what I expect, is a little known episode in French history. I didn't know about it anyway. Like most period pieces, this one takes a few liberties with real events and rearranges the timeline slightly in order to make a more compelling story. It is an interesting story too and the movie held my attention all the way through. That being said, however; it must also be said that there is not much in the way of excitement in the story and you won't find yourself getting emotionally involved with the characters. The setting, costumes and other attention to detail are top-notch. The acting is excellent too. Special kudos to the two young actors who play the Spanish Infanta and Louis XV respectively. Both are excellent and I hope we see much more of them in the future. All in all, this movie is well worth watching. It just won't be one that sticks in your memory long after the closing credits roll.
