Who's who in Versailles S1-3? A guide to the French court
The film was praised for its ingenious soundtrack which mixes classical recordings with New Wave and post-punk tracks, its Oscar-winning set design, and the poised performance of its director and leading lady. The boos it received from sections of the French press at Cannes how dare an American reimagine a villain from French history only served to reinforce its success.
Directed by Patrice Leconte , the film sets out to examine social injustice in France in the late 18th century. What it shows us are two worlds: one in which callous and corrupt aristocrats thrived on a diet of withering putdowns and the avoidance of humiliation, and another in which a nation was starving to death and ravaged by disease. It is obsessed with the witty repartee of court life, so be sure to find a copy with decent subtitles and sharpen your ears for some biting dialogue.
But Elaine Sciolino, the longtime Paris bureau chief of The New York Times , has discovered that seduction is much more than a game to the French: it is the key to understanding France. Seduction plays a crucial role in how the French relate to one another—not just in romantic relationships but also in how they conduct business, enjoy food and drink, define style, engage in intellectual debate, elect politicians, and project power around the world. While sexual repartee and conquest remain at the heart of seduction, for the French seduction has become a philosophy of life, even an ideology, that can confuse outsiders.
In La Seduction , Sciolino gives us an inside view of how seduction works in all areas, analyzing its limits as well as its power. She demystifies the French way of life in an entertaining and personal narrative that carries us from the neighborhood shops of Paris to the halls of government, from the gardens of Versailles to the agricultural heartland. La Seduction will charm you and encourage you to lower your defenses about the French.
