Storyline

Marquise is a drama about the rise and fall of a beauteous actress. As cheerfully portrayed by Sophie Marceau, the eponymous heroine is an engagingly ribald, but perhaps rather too modern, character. She rises from an impoverished background to become a favourite of the Sun King, Louis XIV, and the mistress of the celebrated Racine, who wrote roles especially for her; but her fate, in the end, is a tragic one.

very disappointing
7 August 1998 | by (Walnut Creek, CA) – See all my reviews

I wasn't interested in the story, mainly because I didn't see the point. Sophie Marceau is the only bright sight in the movie.
