Review by Natalie (posted on 25-Jun-2007)

A funnt satiric French comedy that shows how a woman can learn to change her situation 180 degrees from being mocked by the people she should be able to depend on the most. In Palais Royal!, we see Armelle, an average wife and mother who happends to be married to Arnaud, a Prince, transform from a clumsy and misplaced Crown Princess-to be, to a confident and strong woman who knows how to turn the situation to her advantage. Bearing a striking resemblence to the story of Diana, this is a story that makes the viewer laugh almost to the very end. The acting is witty and fresh, and one of its best performances is delivered by the legendary Catherine Deneuve, who stars as the cold Queen (a performance modeled, of course, on Elizabeth II, the Queen of Great Britain). Palais Royal! is a movie recommended to anybody who feels like relaxing in front of the TV, without having to think too much about the plot and events.
