“The things that I prefer in this world, my reasons for living, are books and women. For me the cinema is the best way to unite them”, the French director Benoît Jacquot said. In his new film, Farewell, My Queen, adapted from a prizewinning 2002 book by the French writer Chantal Thomas, he brilliantly captures the passions, depravity, occasional signs of nobility and ultimately the chaos that consumed the court of Marie Antoinette in the final days before the outbreak of the French Revolution. Set in such a scenario, the story revolves around a romantic triangle of Marie Antoinette (Diane Kruger), her confidante Madame de Polignac (Virginie Ledoyen) and Sidonie Laborde (Léa Seydoux), a servant whose task it is to read to the queen. The narrator was middle-aged Sidonie looking back on the events of her youth.
Mr. Jacquot said he knew from the first page that he wanted to adapt Ms. Thomas’s book into a film, intrigued by how it focuses on a single point of view, a strategy he has employed in other films, and his passion for women. “I think one of the things that attracted Benoît is that the story is told from an entirely feminine point of view”, Ms. Thomas said by telephone from Paris. The movie, which opened this year’s Berlin Film Festival, is to open on Friday (July 13) in New York.
