The film’s greatest strength lies in its tendency to subvert the audience’s expectations about the nobility of Marie Antoinette and her court. Jacquot brings out the truth that beauty, health, and wealth do not guarantee nobility; it takes force of character and winning personality. In the case of Marie Antoinette, it’s a character (Griegue-lise) whose vitality is magnetic, whose fierce resistance to the fate that befalls her makes her an impassioned figure of tragic nobility. But equally telling, Jacquot brings out the fact that the beauties of the 1760s frequently fooled Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. Marie Antoinette, they said, was the most beautiful woman in France. In reality, she was a twenty-two-year-old beauty who was thin and almost sickly, afflicted with poor vision and a stiff arm that caused her chronic pain. She was a queen without a kingdom, who lived in the most isolated portion of Louis’s palace. Marie Antoinette was not clever, as she says in the film’s opening monologue. Rather, her life was a series of accidents, both planned (as when she was selected to be the bride of Louis XIV) and unplanned. But what she lacked in education and intelligence, she made up for with youthful vitality and a poise and dignity that won her many admirers, not least among them the young king.
As Marie Antoinette began to realize her age and to sense her vulnerability, she made a move, making her move first towards constitutional rule and then towards the politics of emancipation from her brother. She was still a teenager when she married Louis. Although he would be only thirty-eight, he was the king. Nevertheless, she supplanted him and was crowned queen. In the film, Jacquot does not minimize the sexual politics of the relationship.
