A new French speaking version of the film was released in France in February! Hope we get it here too, it looks wonderful – and I love this director’s work.

Since I went to Apsley House back in July, I’ve become a tad obsessed with all things Wellington and the Battle of Waterloo – not that I wasn’t interested in them before.
I love the story of Lady De Lancey – so I must get Lady De Lancey at Waterloo: A Story of Duty and Devotion by David Miller and re-watch the DVD of Waterloo which I saw years ago and has great battle scenes.
I’ve acquired these great books so far:
- Waterloo: A Near Run Thing by David Howarth
- Ladies of Waterloo – original accounts from Charlotte Eaton, Magdalene De Lancey and Juana Smith
- To War with Wellington by Peter Snow
- Dancing into Battle A Social History of the Battle of Waterloo by Nick Foulkes
I confess I have great fun doing this when I have time.
PeriodDramas.com run a page whereby those people looking for titles they have either forgotten the name of, or never knew it can give details that they remember, and you can answer the ones you know.
Pop over and help if you can…
I haven’t seen this one yet, but it looks as though it will be good! There seems to be a surfeit of fairytale films and TV programmes around and in the making at the moment – including Once Upon a Time, which started on Channel 5 tonight.
I have recorded it, and will watch both with interest. I have already seen the trailer for Snow White and the Huntsman – no idea whether it will be good, but it is beautifully shot.
