La nuit de Varennes
A fictional movie about a group of people who end up traveling together at the same time as the French royal family’s attempted escape from France, and along the same road. Among them are for example Casanova and one of Marie Antoinette’s ladies in waiting.

It’s a bit slow and probably not to everyone’s taste, but it’s interesting if you know about the flight to Varennes. I really liked the end of it, and how you could just glimpse a bit of the royal family at the house where they were detained.

Costume-wise there’s not a lot to see since we follow a small group of people, who, since they are traveling, do not change clothes a lot. I could hardly find any pictures from this film, so you just get this one above.
