| an interesting history but difficult to understand
Very interesting film about the minority of Louis XIV and the regency taken by his mother Anne d'Autriche and her first minister Cardinal Mazarin. It's taken place during the Fronde. It shows the different intrigues, the tensions, the assuming of the power by the duke d'Orléans (uncle of Louis XIV) and his disgrace with the taking of Paris by the royal army. It's a very complex history. Probably to complex to use for a film.
