Marie Antoinette

I was curious but I should have steered clear of this movie. The two hours felt like two years. There was nothing at all to this fluff piece. Blah, blah, blah, history. Adding a Gang of Four song to the proceedings doesn't make the movie less boring. The whole movie felt like a big excuse for Sofia's friends to play dressup.

The cinematography was great though.


Directed by Sofia Coppola
2006

I agree almost completely. There were a few fun scenes of candy and cakes and frou frou madness but not nearly enough and then the heaviness at the end kind of comes out of nowhere and bummed me out and what could have been. gorgeous movie but the acting and plot left me cold and the previews on the dvd were as bad as i've seen in a long time, except for spiderman 3 - bring on venom!

re: "The whole movie felt like a big excuse for Sofia's friends to play dressup."

to me it felt like a way for Sofia Coppola to get a mix tape out to the masses.
