Post I've just found it...
Has anyone seen this music video?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DuQjOs3P7Vo

Well, I still HATE this awful film, even the clothes. But I love "Viva La Vida" by Coldplay (especially for the crosstalk between the lyrics and the life of Louis XVI), and this video seems to be a very nice relation of Marie-Antoinette and the Coldplay hit.
I would be nice, if Kirsten signed up with this band, and not with Coppola. These short scenes are better than the whole film itself, and we can see in Kirsten the real MA. The problems with the unrealistic clothes and people don't actually matter in a music video, too.
(But, if this video was mine, I'd put a picture of Axel Fersen or Artois under the line "my missionaries in a foreign field", as they tried to save the king and his family during their emigration. That's why we love Axel, he surely couldn't be the lover of MA, despite of that film character... :disgust:)

Thanks for posting the music video! I had not seen it, although I do recognize the scenes from the film. I thought the video was really beautiful!!

I like this video, too. Really, well structured and touching :angel3:
Kristen Dunst - in my opinion - is not that bad actress as a good many people think; she portrayed a good, emotional but not slushy character in the Coppola-film. Although I found this movie a bit slothful... but it is not her fault, sure.
I'd rather dislike the acting of Jason Swartzman, who couldn't visualize well the bit obese, impotent king, whom character requires our sympathy and regret. Maybe I am the wrong viewer, sorry for this short criticism of him. :oops: You know, I am only considering his theatrical output in this movie. He can be a good actor irrespectively of this role!

I didn’t like the movie, I found myself bored on the half of it, but I enjoyed the atmosphere created by Versailles, rich costumes, by my favourite century in general. I didn’t like that teen approach and for me it would be more interesting to see how the story ends not only the beginning. Still I don’t find that Kristen’s fault. I think she is very pretty as M.A. and I don’t doubt her acting abilities but I have to agree about Jason Swartzman. Somehow I don’t think he managed to portrait any character and certainly not of Louis XVI. Still my critique may be out of the place too, it’s been a while since I watched the movie and the fact that I don’t remember it only shows how much it affected me.


Yes, I find this video very well structured as well! :)

I haven't seen Jason in any other movies, so I don't know if he was a bad actor or not. But that's true that he isn't our Louis. Jason is short, thin and shows a really stupid face. Louis was very tall and strong, and he was a quite intelligent man, who found the people and the events of Versailles boring and tiring. Jason didn't show boredom or intelligence. He looks like a fairytale king, not Louis XVI. (That crown, my God! The French kings, as I read it somewhere, couldn't wear their crown, because it was too heavy... :roll:)

He was quiet ridiculously miscasted.

It's a great video!
I like Viva la vida and I think the video is very well made, the images perfectly fit the words. It's also very emotional, it makes you feel her feelings.

The only thing I was wondering about is: why do you think the words "my missionaries in a foreign field" were always accompanied by her walking in the grass? I'm sure there is a meaning, by I'm not sure about it: maybe it reminds one of a battle-field? But maybe I'm just going too far with my imagination :)

Here's my guess--a reference to French missionaries aboard in French colonial possessions at the time.

I like both of these theories :) I love this song, the lyrics absolutely seem to be a poem...
As I wrote somewhere in this topic, I think the "missionaires in a foreign field" refers to the immigrant noblemen, for instance Condé, Jules the Polignac, and the future kings, Provence and Artois. (I've seen the film only once, but I remember that it shows simply nothing about the friendship of MA and Artois, so he didn't have so many scenes. I miss his handsome, bravely smiling face under these lines :mrgreen: , but the grass scenes are beautiful and symbolic, too.)

Yes, I also like them very much! And like both of your interpretations too :D The scenes of her walking in the grass evoke far countries and a long way to travel...
And I agree about the fact that it would have been nice to show the friendship between MA and Artois. Actually, one of the aspects I find more interesting about MA life is her "human" side, I mean, how she lived her relationships with friends, family etc...
