    The Lady and the Duke The Lady and the Duke 2001 short review Frock Flicks

    The film was criticised by many viewers in France because of its uncompromising presentation of revolutionary violence; some described it as reactionary or monarchist propaganda. Asked about this, Lucy Russell remarked: "There does seem to be a great problem, not just in France, but every country has problems facing up to the nasty parts of its history. But there's a reason it was called the Terror."
