This mini-series is certainly worth your time if you are into Freud, psychoanalysis and Catherine Deneuve. It says the life storyline (well, the highlights) of Princess Marie Bonaparte (read eva2at's review for plot details), and obliquely throws some light on Freud's last years, roughly from 1925 to his death in 1939. Marie Bonaparte's life was so eventful and well documented (by herself, in extensive journals) that this 3+ hour mini-series at times seems short to do it justice, but anyhow we do receive to know a fair deal about this controversial girl who lived the conflict of being -- all in one -- an anachronistic princess (by birth and by marriage) in a globe that where royalty had lost its political power, as well as a girl ahead of her time fighting for self-knowledge, women's rights, sexual fulfillment and independence. We witness Marie's relationship with her era, her family (including her hag of a grandmother and her closeted gay husband), her lovers, and above all, with Freud and his family: we mustn't forget she was the main responsible for getting Freud safely out of Nazi-ruled Vienna and convincing him not to destroy his correspondence with Fliess (she purchased and safeguarded herself these all-important letters for posterity). Both Freud and his daughter Anna adored her and she had practically become a member of the Freud family in his final years, as Peter Gay avows in his monumental Freud biography. Marie became (with Freud's hearty support) a psychoanalyst herself, practicing until her death in 1962, and was personally selected by Freud to lead the psychoanalytical movement in France.I'm not a Freud scholar, so I can't say about the verisimilitude of Marie's psychoanalytical sessions with Freud (things were probably more complicated than what's shown here), but the production designers did their homework in depicting Freud's popular Berggasse 19 house and office, with his valuable collection of objets d'art, the oriental rugs and the popular divan. However, the movie has its fair amount of flaws: many scenes seem to have been shot in a hurry, the helping characters are shamefully underdeveloped, it looks like many scenes have been chopped and a there's a lot of loose ends (what happened to Marie's son Pierre? Did he marry the Russian Irene? Who was Eugénie's husband again? What happened to Freud's will? etc) but the essential angles of Marie's+Freud's relationship are there. Incidentally, a bigger budget was in dire need, as director Benoît Jacquot can only "suggest" the "big scenes" (her extensive travels, the royal receptions, the Nazi crowds); he has to test archive footage of Vienna, Paris, Rio de Janeiro, the Amazon and the rise of Nazism, though you can rely on Deneuve wearing fabulous wardrobe (well, she plays a princess!). It's been some time since Catherine Deneuve really plunged into a part as she does here. We all know how nice she can be when she's really interested and -- actually that she no longer has the "burden" of proving to be an "ageless beauty", although it's real that she CAN look 15 years younger in medium shots -- she benefits from this one-of-a-kind character, perfectly suited to her personality and range as an actress. Deneuve's Marie is regal, rebellious, sensitive, outspoken, authoritarian, practical, selfish, loyal, vain, brave and committed. It's a full-blooded hero that emerges and Deneuve's engaging performance is at its most effective in the analytical sessions when experiencing traumatic insights -- she really goes for it. A proof of her maturity as an actress and a woman. Heinz Bennent's Freud is equally fascinating. It's interesting to notice that, at the time of filming, Bennent was (amazingly!) 83, the age of Freud when he died in 1939. Bennent carefully builds Freud's hero not only through remarkable physical resemblance but in successfully conveying the flashing intelligence, the sensibility, the stubbornness, the troublesome articulation (because of mandible cancer and painful palate prosthesis), his endless love for his daughter Anna (played by Bennent's true daughter Anne!), his fear of debts and constant worrying about money, the strictness melted down by ailing health, private losses, fight and old age (and wisdom, I suppose). The cast also contains great surprises, like Marie's kids Pierre and Eugénie played by superb siblings Jowan and Isild Le Besco, and, in a tiny part, Deneuve's real-life son Christian Vadim testing the seducer of her own hero as a young woman (how much more Freudian than that can you get?).The movie benefits from Benoît Jacquot's experience in period drama ("Adolphe", "Sade", "Tosca") and a script that -- though it occasionally follows the "miniseries" recipe and seems chopped for length's sake -- manages to contain didactic psychoanalytical jargon and political references without sounding far-fetched; please have in mind this was made for a TV audience, not the art movie circuit. Yes, it might have been better, but if you're a fanatic of Deneuve, Bennent or Marie Bonaparte you won't wish to miss this one.
eva25at's review above accurately recounts the plot of Princess Marie, so i will not repeat any of that. My acc will describe the feelings I experienced with the film. I WAS MESMERIZED! As I have told in my review of Les Temps qui Changent, I will gladly see any non- American movie Deneuve makes. However, unlike the not-worth-it Temps Qui Changent, Princess Marie is an astounding piece of work.As described in the movie notes from the Boston MFA French Movie Festival,where i saw the movie , Deneuve brought the storyline to the director, as they had made another movies together and were looking for other joint project.Well, I am compelled to test that old cliché: Deneuve was born to enjoy this role. She is on the screen in almost each frame, and after the 3 hrs 10 min. i felt that i had attended ,metaphorically speaking, Babette's Feast. The screenplay, the acting, the cinematography,the sets and costumes; they all came together in a beautiful, rich,moving and truly riveting film. When I left the theater,and for that evening, I was still enveloped in the film. A day later,I am still. Wow.
