Amidst the tragedy, loss and power struggles of war, a young aristocratic heiress by the name of Marie DeMezieres has fallen passionately in love with the dashing Henri DeGuise. But due to the political ambitions of her manipulative and controlling father Marie has been forced into an arranged marriage to the prince of Montpensier. Between duty and passion can Marie fight her fate to reclaim her destiny? Directed by the legendary film maker Bertrand Tavernier (The Watchmaker Of St Paul, Coup De Torchon, Round Midnight), The Princess Of Montpensier is a vivid and compelling historic drama.
