FAREWELL MY QUEEN (BOOK) - LES DIABOLIQUES (FILM)

FAREWELL MY QUEEN (BOOK)
LES DIABOLIQUES (FILM)


FAREWELL, MY QUEEN
Chantal Thomas

1810, in exile in Vienna, Agathe-Sidonie, Queen Marie-Antoinette’s reader recounts Versailles:  its splendor, its court and those days, those last few days before the escape, before the worst…


LES DIABOLIQUES
A film by Henri-Georges Clouzot
Made in 1954
With 
Simone Signoret
Vera Clouzot 
Paul Meurisse

A sadistic headmaster,
A commanding and mistreated mistress,
A sickly wife.
A chilling trio in a provincial and claustrophobic boarding school…

Les “Diaboliques” is the first French “horror” film ever made...
