JBLOSS - 10 January 2023 Vicky Krieps performance is excellent! I knew pretty much nothing about the protagonist in this film and I feel those hung up on historical accuracy have completely missed the point. This is a film about a suffocating society, a courtly culture that stifled a clearly very intelligent and emotionally complex woman. The title of the film gives a clear hint of this and we see through the course of the fictional or reimagined series of events the impact it has on Empress Elisabeth. If you're expecting a historical biopic then you'll be disappointed.
Vicky Krieps is excellent in this, her performance is really so good and it lifts the whole film throughout. I felt coming into watch this with no preconceptions has resulted in enjoying an unusual and refreshing film.
zvgndrpqn - 25 December 2022 It's a must see✨ I really enjoyed it, such a good movie😍😍
I love beautiful movies. If a film is eye-candy with carefully designed decorations, masterful camerawork, lighting, and architectural frames, I can forgive anything😍😍😍😍😍😍
History might not have allowed Elisabeth the kind of power she wanted, her death in 1898 also bringing her life to a violent close. But Corsage reimagines it all, granting her unexpected agency and, in eventual death, one moment of pure, well-earned freedom.
Definitely this movie it is a must see for all of us.
You will enjoy it so much so go and watch it✨
Shhh. The movie is about the start!
