France, 1572. During an uneasy break in the wars of religion, Catholic King Charles IX concludes a marriage of state between his sister Margot (Isabelle Adjani) and the Protestant Huguenot King Henry of Navarre.  But Margot’s Queen Mother is already plotting the attack on the Huguenots that would come to be known as the St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre.  Chéreau’s high-octane adaptation of the Alexandre Dumas novel begins in fifth gear and never lets up.
