MARIE ANTOINETTE TV SERIES
STARTS JUST IN A WEEK!
|The series starts next week in France|
was barely 14 years old when she left Austria and her mother empress Maria Theresa to marry the Dauphin in France. She is still a stubborn and dissipated young child who must comply with French rules, which are numerous and complicated. The young princess quickly suffers from not being able to live her life as she sees fit. She is constantly under pressure to carry on the Bourbon line. A mission more complicated than expected: even if the relationship between Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI improves over time, it will take them seven years to consummate their marriage. From the young runner-up to the queen of style, a true fashion icon, Marie Antoinette quickly impresses with her charisma and naturalness. She will gradually understand the codes and secrets of the French court and completely recreate Versailles in her image! But her success stirs up jealousy and rivalry. Defamatory pamphlets and persistent rumors about her private life undermine her reputation. It will take a lot of courage to defeat her numerous enemies at the Versailles court.
THE STORY BEHIND THE SET
Given that the show has been written by an all female team you can expect a feminist agenda stuffed into the times where they did not know an F about Feminism. The 1770s set show was shot in authentic historical locations including the chateau of Versailles from which Marie went on to have her wigged head chop chopped after advising the starving masses to eat some cake if they don't have bread. Of course, the show will depict such a person as not frivolous but strong, empowering, emancipated and independent. I know, I know, I am laughing too... or maybe I am crying. What is known to be true is that she did break down the etiquette established by Louis XIV whom we watched in Versailles series created by the same team as the new series. The court will also include Joseph Bologne de Saint-George, a Creole virtuoso violinist and conductor who was part of Marie-Antoinette’s entourage and who is soon getting his own movie. The series was shot on the sets that took more than two months to built and with the crew that had almost 800 people! The second season is already being written!
The costumes are beautiful with great details!ReplyDelete
I have read somewhere that they had difficulty making them as historical costumes were in shortage due to too many historical shows being shot currently in Europe, so they had to buy and dye their own fabrics and taylor the costumes and Marie, for example, liked to change her outfits sometimes every ten minutes. They also tried to give each character a colour so that they are all recognisable and that they can match pieces easier.Delete
I'm laughing too. Even the filthiest lies , her enemies dumped on her claimed Louis XV who was quite old and had a mistress, tried to have sex with MA. By the way, "Let them eat brioche(cake is an English mistranslation)"was uttered by Maria Teresa, Louis XV grandmother way before Toto was born.ReplyDelete
Who is Toto?Delete
Toto was Maria Antonia's family nicknae. In France , her husband called her Toinette.Delete
It sounds like a name one would give to a dog LOLDelete
Great costumes and cast <3ReplyDelete
Should be fun.Delete
So, is that a wig or did they have to style her hair all crazy like that on top of her head? Either way, it looks almost vulgar LOL.ReplyDelete
I kinda like her wig as it looks like that Strauss or Vienetta ice cream LOLDelete
Bleh to the feminist agenda. I often find their agenda to be counterproductive to the cause. Anyways, the mesdames look like they were based off of Cinderella's evil step sisters!ReplyDelete
These French series often feature ladies of very strange looks to put it mildly.Delete
