Angélique Sancé de Monteloup marries by duty Count Joffrey de Peyrac, a disabled, ugly man of great wealth. A willful and rebellious young woman, Angélique refuses to give in to her husband’s advances until she realizes that he is a man of honor who cherishes freedom as much as she does. Love is born between the spouses. In Louis XIV court, power struggles and plots threaten the happiness of the troublesome couple devoted to fight against oppression and injustice. Ariel Zeitoun gives the swashbuckling film its nobility thanks to the gorgeous period costumes, the settings glistening with gold under flaming torches accompanied by an outstanding soundtrack. The actors galvanize the plot by their talented performances and their biting dialogues with, above all, the magnificent Gérard Lanvin and the beautiful Nora Arnezeder “absolutely superb, there is no other word, especially after an erotic scene particularly touching” (Guillaume Gas). From the colossal meticulously documented novel by Anne Golon, this historical film abounds with adventures, twists and turns but also with interior sensuous, moving scenes. A successful blend of spectacular visuals and a captivating love story!
