La Princesse de Montpensier: (Another compelling film to watch when discussing marriage, infidelity, women, etc…this is only a link to the trailer as the entire film is not available online)
La Reine Margot: (A good film for an exploration of religious controversy, but it does contain graphic violence)
*In connection with a discussion about women’s lack of choice in marriage in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century France, this excerpt from la Reine Margot can incite a lively class discussion.
*There is also a similarly brutal scene in the early part of the film, La Princesse de Montpensier, where the father violently forces his daughter to marry.
Le Retour de Martin Guerre: (This is an excellent film to accompany Marguerite’s tales about justice, women, marriage, etc)
