Sissi

I remember watching this film in Brazil with my mother and siblings... long ago. Last night we watched it, and even the teens and Husband enjoyed it! It is in German with subtitles and it is funny, dynamic and theatrical and the subtitles did not them. The film is based on the life of Empress Elizabeth of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire, and it is the ultimate princess movie with the gorgeous dresses, the romance, the palaces and settings, and culminating with a huge Catholic wedding in Vienna. The film is a trilogy and we will watch the second one tonight!

Oh good, I'm glad you got a chance to see it (and not suprised you saw it earlier too!). We really enjoyed this series.

We watched Sissi the Empress last night! Great for Thomas' German practice!
