- 1. Friendship between Austria
- 2. must be cemented by marriage.
- 3. My youngest daughter, Antoine...
- 4. will be queen of France.
- 5. Mops.
- 6. The court of France
is not like Vienna.
- 7. Listen closely to
Ambassador Mercy's council.
- 8. All eyes will be on you.
- 9. Look.
- 10. Do you like him?
- 11. He has kind eyes.
- 12. He's definitely very French.
- 13. - Three. Four.
- 14. Are we there yet?
- 15. Yes, we have arrived at Schüttern for
the official handover.
- 16. Then you will be presented to the king
and to your fiancé, Louis Auguste.
- 17. Your Royal Highness, may I present
your mistress of the household...
- 18. Comtesse de Noailles.
- 19. Your Royal Highness.
- 20. Madame.
- 21. This structure for
the handover ceremony...
- 22. has been built precisely astride
the borders of the two great lands.
- 23. You have entered on Austrian soil...
- 24. you will exit on French
as the dauphine of France.
- 25. Now you must bid farewell
to your party...
- 26. and leave all of Austria behind.
- 27. Goodbye.
- 28. Mops.
- 29. You can have as many
French dogs as you like.
- 30. It is a custom...
- 31. that the bride retain nothing
belonging to a foreign court.
- 32. An etiquette always observed
on such an occasion.
- 33. You're lucky.
Apparently she's quite beautiful.
- 34. I'll probably end up with someone
who looks like a dog.
- 35. - Or a horse.
- Or a horse.
- 36. I've heard she's really nice.
- 37. - Think they got rabbits here?
- 38. Come on.
- 39. You notice anything strange
about me lately?
- 40. It's so muddy here.
- 41. I know. My stomach feels
a little bit sick.
- 42. Are you feeling better now?
Are you feeling better, Camille?
- 43. - I wonder if our little doggie is sick.
- Feel a little sickly.
- 44. Now.
- 45. Oh, my goodness, it's so
- 46. Come on.
- 47. There we are.
- 48. How is her bosom?
- 49. I have not looked at the archduchess's
bosom, Your Majesty.
- 50. Oh, didn't you?
It's the first thing I look at.
- 51. The Duc de Choiseul.
- 52. The foreign minister
who was instrumental in this union.
- 53. I shall never forget that you were
responsible for my happiness.
- 54. And that of France.
- 55. Please.
- 56. Here comes the Austrian.
- 57. I hope you like apple strudel.
- 58. May I present Madame la Dauphine,
- 59. My dear grandfather king.
- 60. Welcome, madame.
- 61. Let me present my grandson,
- 62. Welcome, madame.
- 63. She looks like a child.
- 64. Hello.
- 65. Thank you.
- 66. - Thank you.
- You're welcome, madame.
- 67. Thanks.
- 68. Hello.
- 69. Amen.
- 70. To the dauphin
and dauphine of France.
- 71. May you have many
- 72. and produce an heir to our throne.
- 73. Good luck.
- 74. And good work.
- 75. Apparently, nothing happened,
- 76. Nothing?
- 77. - Nothing.
- 78. Oh, dear.
- 79. Madame...
- 80. at the morning
- 81. rights of entry are given
to members of the high court.
- 82. Major rights to princesses of the blood
and mistresses of the household...
- 83. while minor rights
to the valets and charges.
- 84. Anyone with rights of entry
may enter at any time...
- 85. so you must pay attention to
acknowledging properly each arrival.
- 86. And you must not
reach for anything...
- 87. for the handing of an item
to the dauphine is a guarded privilege.
- 88. Must go to the highest rank
in the room.
- 89. For example,
the Princesse de Lamballe...
- 90. is a princess of the blood
- 91. Madame.
- 92. Thank you.
- 93. - It's cold.
- 94. Good morning.
- 95. So now the position must go
to the Duchess of Char...
- 96. because she is also
a princess of the blood.
- 97. Hello.
- 98. So now, as a member
of the royal family...
- 99. your sister-in-law, the Comtesse de
Provence, must have the honor.
- 100. This is ridiculous.
- 101. This, madame, is Versailles.
- 102. So I've heard you make keys
as a hobby?
- 103. Yes.
- 104. And you enjoy making keys?
- 105. Obviously.
- 106. She had to let her servants go.
My maid knows the cook.
- 107. You know everyone.
- 108. Comtesse de Noailles
looks very out of sorts.
- 109. I think her husband's been
causing a little problem lately...
- 110. spending far too much time
with his stable boys.
- 111. Too much.
- 112. Marie Antoinette looks
very pretty tonight.
- 113. Yes.
- 114. Darling, a new life, unfortunately.
- 115. When you think about it,
this poor Marie Antoinette.
- 116. So young, so...
- 117. I think she should
go back to her country.
- 118. Look at her, so disgusting.
- 119. The comtesse is looking rather
dour this evening, don't you think?
- 120. Always dour. Always tragic.
- 121. Can't believe they've brought
those ghastly aunts out again.
- 122. Where have they been
hiding them all these years?
- 123. Oh, really? This is shocking.
- 124. What is she...?
- 125. It's so awful, I can't—
Oh, my goodness.
- 126. Who is she?
- 127. That lady is here
to give pleasure to the king.
- 128. That's du Barry, the king's mistress.
- 129. She wouldn't be allowed at court...
- 130. but the king did some maneuvering
to secure her a title.
- 131. The one thing I've learned
about girls from the gutter...
- 132. is they know their jewels.
- 133. No way are those fake.
- 134. You see that?
- 135. Is this the way
people are treating me?
- 136. To the stocks.
- 137. Nobody treats me like a lady here.
- 138. Now she's staring at me.
It's so awful.
- 139. - She should not be sitting at this table.
- I'll have one of—
- 140. Did you hear that?
- 141. - She just burped.
- Out of the whorehouse, darling.
- 142. - I don't know who you're referring to.
- Everyone at this table is for sale.
- 143. - Curls.
- What a little tart.
- 144. Well, she's not the only one at this
table, darling. Take a look around.
- 145. Look at this beautiful
Marie Antoinette. I look like her?
- 146. - Don't you think so?
- A long time ago.
- 147. Oh, you exaggerate.
She has blue eyes like me.
- 148. I suppose she's rather sweet.
For an Austrian.
- 149. I think she's delightful.
She looks like a piece of cake.
- 150. Be interesting to see
how long she lasts.
- 151. Good afternoon, Your Majesty.
- 152. How is your grandson, the dauphin?
- 153. He's off hunting the stag.
- 154. She doesn't seem
the least bit interested in him.
- 155. She is Austrian. They're not exactly
the warmest people.
- 156. But it's true. Her brother Joseph
is so cold. He's an awful man.
- 157. They say in Austria,
that she was with child...
- 158. What a hunt today.
- 159. I'm exhausted.
- 160. Would you like some meat?
- 161. Your Royal Highness...
- 162. handing out cold meats
to a hunting party...
- 163. is not the most becoming conduct
for a future queen of France.
- 164. I was just trying to be a nice wife
for the dauphin's hunt.
- 165. Surely there's no harm in that.
- 166. And I received a letter from
your mother warning you not to ride...
- 167. as this is one of
the leading causes of miscarriages.
- 168. Well, as everyone knows,
there's no danger of that.
- 169. And it's not my fault.
- 170. Do you realize the consequences of
an unconsummated royal marriage?
- 171. That it could be annulled?
- 172. Your mother has asked that
you take this matter very seriously.
- 173. And do everything
in your power...
- 174. to inspire the dauphin.
- 175. I'll do what I can.
- 176. Of course I want to please
the dauphin and my mother.
- 177. You'll have no influence over the king
and dauphin without a pregnancy.
- 178. Madame, you have
the alliance to consider.
- 179. Letting everyone down
would be my greatest unhappiness.
- 180. I am pleased madame
is taking this seriously.
- 181. Oh, is Mops on his way?
- 182. I'm working on it...
- 183. but Your Royal Highness has
more pressing matters to attend to.
- 184. Oh, and I received this letter
from your mother.
- 185. Dearest Antoinette:
- 186. It is clear that the heart
of your problems in your new home...
- 187. is your inability to inspire
sexual passion in your husband.
- 188. There is no reason a girl
with so many charms as you...
- 189. should be in this situation.
- 190. Remember, you represent
- 191. and nothing is certain
about your place there...
- 192. until the final physical act to crown
the Franco-Austrian alliance...
- 193. is performed.
- 194. It's cold.
- 195. It is a bit chilly.
Shall I get you a blanket?
- 196. No. It's okay.
- 197. Are those your feet?
They're like icicles.
- 198. Well...
- 199. sleep well.
- 200. Thank you.
- 201. - Night.
- Good night.
- 202. Your hair always looks so pretty.
- 203. - Oh, do you think so?
- Yeah, it's gorgeous.
- 204. - It's not what I'm used to. It is.
- It's so nice to be blond.
- 205. - Have you been to see Léonard?
- 206. My head is in agony.
- 207. - This morning, I think, you know—
- Did he pull it?
- 208. Léonard must've been
in a bad mood...
- 209. because he was pulling
my hair so hard.
- 210. And I want to tell him, you know, it's
not my fault if he's had a bad morning.
- 211. Don't take it out on my scalp.
- 212. That was unnecessary.
- 213. Watch it.
- 214. I would love to go
to the opera in Paris.
- 215. Why go to the opera when we can
listen to the comtesse here?
- 216. Must she sing all night?
- 217. Can't you do something
about your wife?
- 218. Madame, shall we retire
to make love all night?
- 219. Four times last night wasn't enough.
- 220. Dear Antoinette:
- 221. I am extremely concerned
with your situation.
- 222. Fortunately, the king doesn't show
preference for your sister-in-law.
- 223. But what if she becomes pregnant?
- 224. Also, I have heard...
- 225. that you are not making
invitations to Madame du Barry.
- 226. Snubbing the king's favorite,
in your position...
- 227. is extremely unwise.
- 228. - Du Barry is dreadful.
- 229. The way she dresses.
She thinks she is the queen.
- 230. Yes, she does.
And those ridiculous pet monkeys.
- 231. Where does she come from?
- 232. From every bed in Paris.
- 233. You know, we didn't think she'd
last long until she married the comte...
- 234. and then he was conveniently
shipped away somewhere.
- 235. She doesn't stay in the boudoir.
- 236. - She's political.
- 237. And extremely anti-Choiseul.
- 238. And I don't want to say this...
- 239. but I don't think that she has
greeted you with respect.
- 240. That's just my opinion.
- 241. Ambassador Mercy says
I must pay her a visit.
- 242. Well, if we invited you to tea
at the last minute...
- 243. you wouldn't be able to,
- 244. She died giving birth
to her tenth child.
- 245. What a pity. What a pity.
- 246. - There was blood all over—
- Here comes our little Austrian.
- 247. - Good afternoon, madame.
- Good afternoon.
- 248. Good afternoon. You look lovely.
- 249. Oh, thank you. So do you.
- 250. Thank you.
- 251. Look at du Barry.
What is she wearing now?
- 252. Another one of her exotic fantasies?
- 253. She can't pass a mirror
without seducing it.
- 254. Do you think she's wearing
- 255. Never enough for du Barry.
- 256. She's coming.
- 257. Oh, I love your shoes, Victoire.
- 258. Oh, why, thank you.
I got them from Christian in Paris.
- 259. - Oh, I must call on him.
- Yes, you must. He's wonderful.
- 260. Madame du Barry would like
to offer you some diamonds.
- 261. I have enough diamonds.
- 262. Snubbing the king's favorite is publicly
criticizing the king's behavior.
- 263. All you need do is say
a few words to her.
- 264. Because of rank she is not
allowed to speak first.
- 265. I certainly have nothing
to say to her.
- 266. Why should I approve of his
cavorting with a harlot?
- 267. - Your Royal Highness.
- Well, that's what she is.
- 268. Everyone knows she's from a brothel
and that title was bought for her.
- 269. Your mother and I
are very concerned.
- 270. Du Barry has been complaining to
the king that you will not address her.
- 271. And you cannot afford
to fall out of favor with the king.
- 272. Especially as your marriage...
- 273. not exactly on solid ground.
- 274. Fine. I'll talk to her.
- 275. There are a lot of people
at Versailles today.
- 276. Yes, there are.
- 277. Those are my last words
to that woman.
- 278. The first mechanical locks
were made of wood.
- 279. Records show them in use
some 4000 years ago in Egypt.
- 280. Any good fans? That one's pretty.
- 281. - Evening or daytime?
- I like lace.
- 282. These are so du Barry.
- 283. - Do you like these for hair?
- It's beautiful.
- 284. - You don't think it's too much?
- Maybe one.
- 285. - One feather?
- 286. Or in white?
- 287. Can we get these in white, maybe?
- 288. I don't know if I like that one.
- 289. I love these.
- 290. Do you want these too?
- 291. Yeah, but in pink.
- 292. Oh, okay. Two in pink.
- 293. Has madame read the brief
on our current situation?
- 294. No, I haven't read it yet.
- 295. Can you just tell me about it?
- 296. Well, the reforms in Poland by King
Poniatowski have led to civil war.
- 297. The Russians and the Austrians
have taken over a third of Poland...
- 298. which is, of course, distressing...
- 299. as Poland is a friend and ally
- 300. Which sleeve do you like?
With ruffles or without?
- 301. Have you been paying
- 302. Your mother is relying on you
to smooth over this crisis.
- 303. Where will I be if there's a rupture
between our two families?
- 304. Am I to be Austrian
or the dauphine of France?
- 305. You must be both.
- 306. - Well, I heard that she bought a boy.
- 307. Yes, I heard. She found a peasant
boy by the side of the street...
- 308. and took him in like a stray dog.
- 309. Well, it's not as if
she can have one of her own.
- 310. Maybe if she spent
less time with Lamballe...
- 311. and more time with her husband...
- 312. there wouldn't be a problem.
- 313. Well, let's not forget
she is an Austrian spy.
- 314. And I can't imagine
that's very warm in the bedroom.
- 315. Come, my little truffle cake.
- 316. I'm going to ravage you.
- 317. - Will you come back right away?
- Yes, my sweet.
- 318. Just a quick hunting excursion,
we'll be back straightaway.
- 319. I will be humiliated
before the court and the public...
- 320. if your brother's new wife
becomes pregnant before I do.
- 321. When I return from Saint-Cloud,
you can be sure...
- 322. that I will resume my regime.
- 323. And hopefully everything
will go swimmingly.
- 324. I have absolutely no intention of
breaking the alliance with Austria.
- 325. I am very relieved to hear that,
- 326. But what on earth is going on
with that young couple?
- 327. It's a disaster.
- 328. Send for Dr. Lassonne to visit them.
- 329. Yes, of course.
- 330. Do you find your body responsive?
- 331. What?
- 332. Do you find your body responsive?
- 333. What do you eat for breakfast?
- 334. Hot chocolate.
- 335. Hot chocolate.
- 336. Hello?
- 337. Hello, Yolande.
- 338. How lovely to see you.
- 339. Yes. This is
the Duchesse de Polignac.
- 340. - Hello.
- Your Majesty.
- 341. - We haven't seen you for a while.
- I know.
- 342. I've been in St. Petersburg,
where I met Dimitri.
- 343. Isn't he divine?
Have you ever been with a Russian?
- 344. - No, I—
- They're so bossy.
- 345. Look how fat the marquis's gotten.
Hope he doesn't break the chair.
- 346. Is he still sleeping with Camille?
- 347. Anyway, I must be off.
It was lovely to meet you.
- 348. Quiet.
- 349. Applause is not usually permitted
at court performances.
- 350. Why not? It was wonderful.
- 351. Clap, clap.
- 352. Clap.
- 353. Dearest Antoinette:
- 354. I'm pleased to tell you how wonderful
your brothers and sisters are doing...
- 355. in their marriages.
- 356. Maria Carolina is pregnant...
- 357. expecting her first child in June.
- 358. And Ferdinand is enchanted
- 359. having made her his wife at once.
- 360. All this news, which should fill me
- 361. is diminished by reflections
on your dangerous situation.
- 362. Everything depends on the wife...
- 363. if she is willing and sweet.
- 364. I can't repeat enough...
- 365. the importance for you
to employ charm and patience...
- 366. never ill humor, to remedy
this unfortunate situation.
- 367. Remember, nothing is certain
about your place there...
- 368. until an heir is produced.
- 369. - Excuse me.
- It's all right.
- 370. I'm sorry.
- 371. That's all right.
- 372. - I'm sorry.
- It's all right.
- 373. - Good night.
- Good night.
- 374. Your Majesties are requested at the
delivery of Comtesse de Provence.
- 375. Bravo, bravo.
- 376. - Oh, wonderful!
- It's a healthy baby boy.
- 377. Oh, my God. How happy I am.
- 378. Let me see my nephew.
The new Duc d'Angoulême.
- 379. - Congratulations.
- Thank you.
- 380. It's the first Bourbon prince
of his generation.
- 381. He's so beautiful.
- 382. It's barren. What do you expect?
- 383. When will you give us an heir?
- 384. I hear she's frigid.
- 385. I like the pink. It's like candy.
- 386. This is wonderful.
- 387. I love this.
- 388. Oh, it's a classic.
- 389. Could we get
some more champagne?
- 390. Monsieur Léonard.
- 391. Ravishing.
- 392. Oh, Léonard.
- 393. You're the best.
- 394. - It's not too much, is it?
- 395. We should all go to Paris
for the masked ball.
- 396. We're not allowed to go
without a formal reception.
- 397. Well, if it's a masked ball...
- 398. no one would have to know,
- 399. Sorry.
- 400. Which way?
- 401. Come on.
- 402. Excuse me.
- 403. Excuse me.
- 404. Where do you come from, monsieur?
- 405. Versailles.
- 406. And has the dauphin
done the deed yet?
- 407. What?
- 408. Has the dauphin deflowered
- 409. - Excuse me?
- I'd love to do the honors, you know.
- 410. Doesn't interest me. Cheers.
- 411. Look at that sword.
- 412. I'd like to see what he could
do with that.
- 413. Oh, who's he talking to?
- 414. Hideous dress she's wearing.
- 415. Pretend you're having
a really good time.
- 416. Have fun.
- 417. - Do I know you?
- No. I don't think so.
- 418. Are you making
any progress with her?
- 419. Possibly.
- 420. Are you going to tell me
who you are?
- 421. Are you?
- 422. Count Fersen of the Swedish army.
- 423. Count Fersen.
- 424. That's the dauphine.
- 425. We must go.
It's half past three in the morning.
- 426. No. Let's just stay a little longer.
- 427. - Oh, please. Let's go. Come on.
- Please, please.
- 428. Finally.
- 429. Do you know of Count Fersen?
- 430. Yes! Count Fersen, of course.
- 431. Beatrice de la Falaise
was with him last summer.
- 432. He's got quite a reputation,
- 433. Comtesse de Sevigny.
She was with him too.
- 434. Good morning.
- 435. - What is it?
- The king has fallen ill.
- 436. Is it serious?
- 437. Smallpox.
- 438. He doesn't have long.
- 439. You know, we cannot take his
confession while he has a mistress.
- 440. It will be taken care of.
- 441. Madame du Barry...
- 442. I'm sick and know
what I have to do.
- 443. Rest assured...
- 444. I shall always...
- 445. have the most tender feelings
of friendship for you.
- 446. Bring me du Barry.
- 447. She is gone, Your Majesty.
- 448. The king is dead.
Long live Louis XVI.
- 449. Your Majesties,
I am at your loyal service.
- 450. Dear God, guide us and protect us.
We are too young to reign.
- 451. May God crown you
with a crown of glory.
- 452. How marvelous.
- 453. Here are two for me and the queen.
- 454. Happy birthday, darling!
- 455. One, two, three.
- 456. Happy birthday!
- 457. Happy birthday, darling.
Eighteen. Happy birthday.
- 458. Big stakes! Come on now!
- 459. That one.
- 460. That one's for me.
- 461. What's coming?
- 462. Amazing.
- 463. Here are two.
- 464. So pretty!
- 465. Oh, Léonard.
- 466. Thank you.
- 467. Okay, come round to the salon.
- 468. Speak to le beau Julian.
- 469. - First. And then you'll see me.
- 470. I've heard he likes men as well.
- 471. No. No. It's not true.
- 472. Do you want some cherry?
- 473. I love your hair.
What's going on there?
- 474. Everything.
- 475. - It's fantastic.
- It's full of secrets.
- 476. You're winning, I hope.
- 477. Madame, it's quite late.
- 478. I think it's time for
the dealers to return to Paris.
- 479. You said we could play
but you never specified for how long.
- 480. - You're worthless.
- I won again!
- 481. - Give me my chips.
- How'd you get so good at this?
- 482. - Good night.
- Oh, no. Don't go to sleep.
- 483. We're gonna watch the sunrise.
Don't you want to see that?
- 484. I'd rather get
some much-needed sleep.
- 485. Have you ever watched the sunrise?
- 486. When I rise early for the hunt,
- 487. - That doesn't count.
- It's your turn.
- 488. Try not to lose our whole fortune.
- 489. On a roll.
- 490. I'm taking off.
- 491. That's impressive.
That is very impressive.
- 492. Wait! Wait! Wait!
- 493. Spin with me!
- 494. Wait!
- 495. Come along.
- 496. Come on. Come on, people.
Move, move, move.
- 497. Isn't that the most beautiful thing
you've ever seen?
- 498. - Happy birthday.
- Happy birthday.
- 499. - Cheers. For the birthday girl.
- Happy birthday.
- 500. To the new day.
- 501. And the next one.
- 502. I think I have a fly
in my champagne.
- 503. I would like to plant oaks
all along these paths.
- 504. How long will that take?
- 505. It will take two weeks to get them,
but they will be quite small.
- 506. What if I want them that size?
- 507. It will take at least three years.
- 508. - Three years?
- 509. Well, can't they bring in
- 510. Well, I can see.
- 511. Your Majesty, you have spent
over 50,000 already this month.
- 512. There is nothing left
to go to your charities.
- 513. Your Majesty? Léonard is here
to fit your new wigs.
- 514. All right.
I'll get the small trees.
- 515. And I'll ask Louis for the money
for the Young Mothers' Fund.
- 516. The Americans are asking for help
in their revolution.
- 517. Well, I can't exactly see
- 518. who are rejecting their sovereign.
- 519. But it would make
a strong statement to England.
- 520. Can our finances take the strain?
- 521. Oh, taxes will be raised slightly.
- 522. I recommend we help
our American brothers...
- 523. and show the rest of Europe
- 524. All right, then.
Send funds to America.
- 525. Madame, your brother, the emperor,
is in the salon waiting for you.
- 526. He's here? Thank you.
- 527. Have you come to take me home?
- 528. Unfortunately, I can't kidnap
the queen of France.
- 529. Is your hair quite tall enough today?
- 530. Maybe you can keep a pet
in there or something.
- 531. The emperor of China
sent me this tea.
- 532. Watch the flower.
- 533. Isn't it divine?
- 534. Yes.
- 535. It's jasmine.
- 536. As your brother, I have to lecture you
about your constant gambling...
- 537. and choice of friends,
like the Duchesse de Polignac.
- 538. Do you think she's the proper
lady-in-waiting for a queen?
- 539. But she's fun. She makes me laugh.
- 540. And your constant parties.
- 541. I mean, they can hardly leave you
enough time to spend...
- 542. alone with your husband.
- 543. I'm sure our mother has worried you.
- 544. Yes. Well, of course she has.
- 545. I think I'm gonna talk to young Louis.
- 546. Magnificent.
- 547. We have a female elephant
in our Austrian menagerie.
- 548. Well, perhaps we could arrange
- 549. So...
- 550. I thought we could have a little talk
about the marriage bed.
- 551. The doctor said I was fit.
- 552. Good.
- 553. What goes on exactly?
- 554. I understand you have
a certain passion for locks.
- 555. Yes.
- 556. Well, sometimes when
a key doesn't quite fit...
- 557. The problem is only that
the king and queen of France...
- 558. are complete blunderers.
- 559. There's nothing really wrong
with Louis XVI.
- 560. Everything works,
just not at the right time.
- 561. I think after our conversation,
the great work will be accomplished.
- 562. Very warm in here.
- 563. I can't even believe she's getting
- 564. Is it a boy?
- 565. It's a girl, look.
- 566. She's unconscious.
We must get her air.
- 567. Please, the queen needs air.
- 568. Excuse me. Excuse me. Excuse me.
- 569. Get back. Back.
Get back, please.
- 570. Everybody, please.
- 571. Get back.
- 572. Oh, he's beautiful.
- 573. You are adorable.
- 574. It's a girl.
- 575. Poor little girl.
- 576. You are not what was desired,
but you are no less dear to me.
- 577. A boy would be the son of France...
- 578. but you, Marie Thérèse,
shall be mine.
- 579. Come look.
- 580. Oh, she's so small.
- 581. Look at her hands.
- 582. I would like to feed her myself.
- 583. But, madame,
we have the nurse for that.
- 584. And you know, it's not a good idea
in your fragile condition.
- 585. Madame.
- 586. May I present you with
your new retreat, the Petit Trianon.
- 587. Thank you.
- 588. I want something
more simple. Natural.
- 589. To wear in the garden.
- 590. Are you getting food for the little lamb?
Let's feed the lamb.
- 591. Marie Thérèse, come here.
- 592. You do it. You do it.
You feed the lamb.
- 593. You feed the lamb.
- 594. Little lamby.
- 595. Beautiful.
- 596. What is this? It's an egg.
- 597. Welcome to my little village.
I love it here.
- 598. - Really special.
- It's my heaven.
- 599. - Hello.
- 600. Oh, look, the chickens
are out. Fabulous.
- 601. Oh, the lilies look so beautiful.
- 602. - It's heavenly.
- 603. Come on, you little chickens.
Come on, little chickens!
- 604. Oh, look at those little things. Hello!
- 605. That one's named after me.
- 606. Oh, this is my favorite, all the fresh
herbs. They smell so good.
- 607. You've got to brush the dirt off a bit,
but they're quite clean after that.
- 608. Oh, we must do this more often.
I love the country.
- 609. Where'd you get this from?
- 610. - Wait till you try this milk.
- Oh, what beautiful porcelain.
- 611. - How lovely.
- That one's very good.
- 612. One of these.
- 613. You must try the milk.
- 614. Thank you.
- 615. Rousseau says:
- 616. "If we assume man has been
corrupted by an artificial civilization...
- 617. what is the natural state?
- 618. The state of nature
from which he has been removed?
- 619. Imagine wandering up
and down the forest...
- 620. without industry, without speech...
- 621. and without home."
- 622. Let's get a blue flower.
- 623. Beautiful.
- 624. No, I think perceived austerity
must be encouraged...
- 625. but I'm afraid the queen has
a somewhat artistic temperament...
- 626. which needs nourishing.
- 627. May I speak to you?
- 628. Yes. Excuse me, Father.
- 629. We have not received any invitation
by the queen...
- 630. which is customary to our rank.
- 631. I'm afraid the queen is not well
enough for formal entertaining...
- 632. but I will speak with her, madame.
- 633. But—
- 634. How can we be expected
to live in a place...
- 635. without any certainty
of our position?
- 636. I don't understand.
- 637. The Duchesse de Char
was very angry.
- 638. But this is my escape
from all the protocol.
- 639. Raumont, amongst others,
- 640. Well, we'll invite them to the theater
for my first performance.
- 641. - We'll need an audience.
- 642. Bravo!
- 643. Bravo!
- 644. Bravo!
- 645. And in the end, I don't know
how they go out.
- 646. - It's always raining there.
- Not like here. It's always raining.
- 647. They are cheerful, I must admit.
- 648. There's someone to see you.
- 649. Oh, who?
- 650. Good afternoon!
- 651. You've come to pay me a visit.
How gallant you are.
- 652. - Have you seen Marie Thérèse today?
- She's been married off.
- 653. Can't we at least wait
until she's talking?
- 654. If you insist.
- 655. Come home. We're having a ball for
the soldiers who fought in America.
- 656. I will.
- 657. I hope there are
some handsome generals.
- 658. They've been away from women
a long time, you know.
- 659. May I also present Comte d'Estaing.
- 660. Excellent victory on the capture
of Grenada. Excellent.
- 661. Congratulations.
- 662. Your Majesty, may I present
- 663. May I also present Count Fersen.
- 664. Count Fersen.
- 665. Pleasure's all mine.
- 666. Thank you, sir. Thank you.
- 667. - What is this?
- It's a wild strawberry.
- 668. Try it. It's quite exquisite.
- 669. Honestly! "The Marriage of Figaro".
You'd love it.
- 670. The servants take over the house.
- 671. It's superb.
- 672. The women were carrying
the verses around on their fans.
- 673. Best thing I've seen for years.
You enjoyed it, didn't you?
- 674. I think we saw it together.
- 675. It was over three hours.
Far too long for me.
- 676. - Cheers, everybody.
- To the queen.
- 677. To our queen.
- 678. Have a good evening.
- 679. And to Raumont
for bringing the oysters.
- 680. To Raumont for the oysters.
- 681. And to Lamballe
for bringing the flowers.
- 682. For the flowers, beautiful flowers.
- 683. And to Fersen for coming
all the way from Sweden.
- 684. - Yes.
- To Sweden.
- 685. All the way from Sweden.
- 686. That is a very long journey,
I must say.
- 687. - How long was it?
- Took about ten days.
- 688. Yes, ten days
is a very long time.
- 689. Personally, I can't travel
that much myself.
- 690. - Far too long.
- I must show you this trick.
- 691. Everybody, lick your finger and then
rub it around the rim of the glass.
- 692. Beautiful.
- 693. - A horrible sound.
- Oh, come on. It's like angels.
- 694. - It's like angels.
- It's very pretty.
- 695. It is pretty, isn't it?
- 696. It's very spiritual, really, isn't it?
- 697. When was the last time
you went to Mass?
- 698. - Of sorts.
- I haven't seen it.
- 699. Ask another question.
- 700. - I can ask another question?
- 701. Am I a male?
- 702. - No.
- 703. Partially.
- 704. That's terrible.
- 705. Oh, that's so mean.
- 706. My turn, it's my turn.
- 707. Am I a woman?
- 708. Am I a soldier?
- 709. - Do I write music?
- 710. Am I a vegetable?
- 711. - Yes. Good question.
- 712. Am I...
- 713. from the ancient world?
- 714. - Am I here?
- 715. No, thank God.
- 716. Am I...
- 717. present now?
- 718. - Yes.
- Yes, always.
- 719. - Am I—?
- You're very talented.
- 720. - Am I Alexander the Great?
- 721. Is it Mozart?
- 722. - You saw!
- You've seen yours.
- 723. That's the second time
I've won as well.
- 724. - You saw that.
- There's something in the oysters.
- 725. Be careful, please.
- 726. But you should try to visit America.
- 727. It's beautiful, very different
- 728. Our queen seems rather fond
of looking at Count Fersen.
- 729. Then you've not heard
of the Hasselhoff family singers?
- 730. No.
- 731. Well, he's easy on the eyes.
- 732. But don't you think she favors him
- 733. Just because it is not you?
- 734. Don't you think it would be
unbecoming to our queen...
- 735. when he has quite a reputation?
- 736. He amuses her,
and she likes to be amused.
- 737. There's nothing unregal
in that, monsieur.
- 738. - You must meet soldiers all the time.
- No, I don't.
- 739. You don't?
- 740. And then he took it out.
Just like that.
- 741. I said, "What do you think
you'll do with that, monsieur?"
- 742. Oh, good God, don't act all innocent.
- 743. Please.
- 744. I could have told him exactly
what to do with it.
- 745. And what is that, darling?
- 746. Put it back in his trousers
where it belonged.
- 747. Lamballe, ladies and gentlemen,
is what we call a prude.
- 748. Better than a whore.
- 749. I wish I could go with you.
- 750. I should kidnap you.
- 751. Of course, you know
the one about the English letter.
- 752. Don't you want to go to Paris,
see the opera?
- 753. Your go.
- 754. I'm more comfortable
just to stay here.
- 755. We have everything we need.
- 756. I should talk to the priest.
No, that's inexcusable.
- 757. It is. It's dangerous for her safety.
- 758. Goodness, a criminal
could come in here.
- 759. - Cheat.
- Conceivably her husband.
- 760. You know, I heard
she's not even really a duchess.
- 761. Yeah, it's all a front.
- 762. Her husband's a thief,
and he bought her title.
- 763. Is that what happened? Really?
- 764. That's what I heard.
- 765. - How much did that cost?
- A fortune.
- 766. It would cost a fortune, wouldn't it?
- 767. To buy a title? Yes. At the court?
- 768. She shouldn't be allowed.
- 769. She should buy a new dress,
is what she should buy.
- 770. She should buy a new dress,
yeah, you're right.
- 771. Vaguely.
- 772. - What are you laughing at?
- 773. May I be excused?
- 774. Yes, of course, madame.
- 775. I might go and ask her.
That way she'll tell us exactly.
- 776. Ask her about her family.
- 777. The problem of the debt
is grave, Your Majesty.
- 778. The people of France are hungry.
- 779. Sending troops to America is costing
more than what we estimated.
- 780. But we can't let England win.
- 781. We must show our strength.
- 782. We will continue aid
to the Americans.
- 783. And when they went to the queen
to tell her her subjects had no bread...
- 784. do you know what she said?
- 785. Let them eat cake.
- 786. That's such nonsense.
I would never say that.
- 787. And here you're having
an orgy with quite a big group.
- 788. I think I'm here sucking your toes.
- 789. Don't they ever tire
of these ridiculous stories?
- 790. They say you gave Thomas Jefferson
a special tour of your gardens.
- 791. Is Jefferson admiring
the royal bush?
- 792. - Oh, that's awful.
- Can't you do something?
- 793. I'm not going to acknowledge it.
- 794. The French can be fickle...
- 795. and Her Majesty would do well
to be more attentive.
- 796. Life is getting harder
for the people of France.
- 797. The bread shortage is grave.
- 798. Well, there must be something the
king can do to ease their sufferings.
- 799. Tell the court jeweler
to stop sending diamonds.
- 800. You don't need any diamonds,
- 801. - No.
- How pretty Madame Royale is.
- 802. I'm pleased you find me so.
- 803. Say thank you.
- 804. She is certainly
a daughter of France.
- 805. Oh, I know.
- 806. What's the matter?
- 807. Your mother has died.
- 808. I'm so sorry.
- 809. Oh, my brother, I am devastated
by the news of our mother's death.
- 810. You alone are left to me in Austria...
- 811. which is and will always be
so dear to me.
- 812. Remember we are your friends,
- 813. I embrace you.
- 814. Madame, you have fulfilled
our wishes and those of France.
- 815. You are the mother of a dauphin.
- 816. May I present the dauphin of France.
- 817. What a joy. The dauphin of France.
- 818. Hello. Why don't you hit
the ball over there?
- 819. Come on. You're gonna hit it.
- 820. Your Majesty, the Bastille fortress
was stormed by an angry mob.
- 821. In view of the hatred felt
for the Duchesse de Polignac...
- 822. thought to be
the queen's favorite...
- 823. I would recommend that
she leave for the Swiss border.
- 824. I also must urge all of the princes
and princesses of the blood...
- 825. to leave at once.
- 826. Yes, they must go. I will stay.
- 827. Certainly the royal family
must find somewhere more secure.
- 828. Metz is one of the strongest
fortresses in Europe.
- 829. You will not be safe here.
- 830. I will see to it that
my mistresses are off at once...
- 831. but my place is here
with my husband.
- 832. Goodbye.
- 833. Your Majesty, your immediate
return is requested.
- 834. There's a mob of hundreds...
- 835. on their way in demand
of flour from their sovereign.
- 836. It would be more secure
to decamp to Rambouillet...
- 837. - ... twice the distance from Paris.
- I will not be a fugitive king.
- 838. It is too dangerous here.
- 839. At least send
the queen and children.
- 840. My place is at the king's side.
- 841. The first of them
have arrived in town.
- 842. We will stay here.
- 843. Save the queen, madame.
They're coming to kill her.
- 844. Celine, don't be frightened.
- 845. Let's get the children.
- 846. Are you admiring your lime avenue?
- 847. I'm saying goodbye.
