Palais royal! France 2005 | 110 min | OV | | FF 2006

rated for 0 + years
The Queen is not amused. Or rather, she is pas amusée, since she's very French and rather annoyed at daughter-in-law Armelle who allows her tiara to fall into the soup de peas. But Armelle is a speech therapist and came from rags to riches into the royal household and under the stern eye of Catherine Deneuve as queen mother. Clever satire, full of relish and allusions to Princess Diana and her successors.
