L'Évasion de Louis XVI

French TV film - a docu-fiction - by Arnaud Sélignac, 90 mn, 2009.

This film recounts the day of June 21, 1791, when King Louis XVI and his family tried to flee France, and failed.

The critic of the film is good, telling that the film, conceived like a thriller, left aside all the clichés about Louis XVI and gives a faithful account of what happened on that very day.
Not really a surprise when we know the historical adviser was Jean-Christian Petitfils.

It'll be broadcast on February 24, by the French channel France 2.
