User Reviews

Angélique, Mon Amour

I have not seen this movie for many years but I remember it fondly. I used to be a huge fan in my early teenage years. Along with my friends, we had seen “Angélique, marquise des anges” no less than ten times at the cinema, and we all fell in love with green-eyed, sensual Angelique, her mysterious and brilliant husband, the Count Jeoffrey de Peyrac (Robert Hossein), her sharp and clever friend, Desgrez (Jean Rochefort), with the atmosphere of 17th century’s France, its picturesque country sides, splendor of Paris and Versailles and dark secrets of the Lous XIV court. Very French movie at its best. I also would like to mention that the movie is based on the first book in the series by Anne and Serge Golon, and all books are absolutely marvelous.

A breathtaking spectacle

I really do not understand how it is possible that one of the greatest movie series of 1960`s has got such a small amount of comments on this site. This opening movie of the five-part series is in my opinion one of the best. We can see a successful portrayal of rural France of 17th century, the splendour of the golden age of Lous XIV., the debauchery of the court of Versailles etc. Michelle Mercier is simply beautiful, Toja as Louis XIV. is very good as well. The film features some very well-acted scenes. I can recommend it to anyone who loves historical spectacles. This is one of the best ever filmed, I have doubts whether the present film-makers would manage to match it!
