I don't see how people can blame her for reacting in any other way after she heard of the violence at the Bastille and the heads on pikes. Any sane person would have reacted the same way.

:idea: I think also when you think about it, even if she understood what the peasants went through what difference would it have made? All of us agree that she did up to the point aided the wounded, washed the peasants feet, etc. But her good deeds were looked upon with a cold glance and still the people hated her even if she helped. It would not have made the difference, it didn't change anything, they would still hate her so much because she is an Austrian and a women with many rumors attached, and they felt no good deed can wash that away. So obviously the more good she would do the more they would hate her and they would be so blind to overlook the fact that she did because their too focused on thier blind hatred.

No, they are seperate movies. Marie Antoinette:The Queen of Versailles DVD is really cheap on Amazon.com (around $6.00) and the PBS documentary is about $24.99.

I just bought the PBS documentary yesterday. I liked it, but members I am coming along and learning so much here. It causes me to research and read whatever I can.

I enjoyed seeing all of the cartoons and depictions from the pamphlets they showed in the film. Does anyone know if they're accurate? Were they the real ones?

Wow, I'm surprised you guys hate it so much! I thought it showed her in a really sympathetic light, and I really truly enjoyed it.

I haven't seen many documentaries on Marie (wish there were more!), but I have to say this one was the best of any I've seen! The way they told her story, and interviewed experts, was absolutely wonderful. I loved it, and would love to have it on DVD. :D

Really? :shock:
What a big mistakes!
All the Marie-Thérèse's girls had a first name "Marie", in the honor of the virgin… but they were never called Marie… they were called by their second name….Antoinette or Antonia for our Queen :D
