Storyline

A wide-ranging, energetic period piece tracing the rise of the Protestant Henry of Navarre as he goes from battlefield warrior to France's beloved King Henri IV. Director Jo Baier's epic is a classically entertaining adventure, albeit one with more than a little bloodshed and frequent bawdy sexual interludes. In late 16th-century France, Catholics and Protestant Huguenots were at war. Seemingly seeking peace, the French dowager queen, Catherine de Medici summons Henry to her court to have him marry her daughter, uniting the two warring factions. However, the Catholics slaughter the Protestant wedding guests in what became known as the St. Bartholomew's Day massacre and Henry-now married-must use all his guile to both stay alive and maneuver for the throne Written by Palm Springs Internation Film Festival

Originally a mini series and sadly it shows.
28 July 2019 | by Jester222See all my reviews

I enjoy historic films and this caught my eye. It was well acted and shot. Sadly because it was originally a mini series it has been massively edited into a two and a half hour film. And it shows. Some really bad edits ing makes the film a complete mess which jumps all over the place and makes viewing frustrating. People are quickly friends and then enimies, sick for no reason in the next scene and main characters simply disappear never to be seen again. If possible.....seek out the mini series and watch in its intended runtime.....which I should imagine is a lot lot longer. This slapdash editing and slapping together of scenes makes it badly disjointed.
