Synopsis

Wars between Catholics and Protestants rip France apart in the 16th century. Based on a novella by the celebrated Madame de Lafayette, the action centers on the love of Marie de MeziՌres for her dashing cousin Henri de Guise, thwarted when her father's political ambitions force her into marriage with the well-connected Philippe de Montpensier, who she has never met. When Philippe is called for combat duty in the army, she is left in the care of Count Chabannes, an aging nobleman with a disdain for warfare, and soon becomes exposed to the sexual and political intrigues of court.
