The Wings of the Dove

The Wings of the Dove

Some say this is one of Helena Bonham Carter's best performances. Well, all I know is this is a heart wrenching love story. So compelling to watch, it truly leaves you with heartache for the characters involved.

This film was criticized as playing fast and loose with history and being vacuous to boot. It tells the story of arguably the most famous and infamous queen in history, French queen Marie Antoinette, whose husband was at the helm of a France dissolving into revolution. Sofia Coppola has crafted a believable story around the teenager thrust into the pomp of overblown French society. And too little positive attention has been given to the attention paid to all the costumes, sets and style of the film. That's what sticks out most - and Coppola should not be criticized for "glossing over" the historical details. This is a film about Marie Antoinette, not Marie Antoinette and the French Revolution. It's soundtracked to surprising effect with new wave - yet another thing Coppola's been criticised for - but it adds interest and allows for Marie Antoinette's story to have some modern relevance. It's a candy-coloured fantastic film full of visual delights and Kirsten Dunst does a stellar job in the lead role.

There they betray each other easily, and find an unexpected chance at redemption and happiness while on a deadly journey into the heart of ancient China. ;;Two of my favorite actors.
