Queen Marie SEX/NUDITY 6

 – A man and woman have sex and we see her fully nude (bare breasts, abdomen, legs and buttocks are shown) as she straddles him and thrusts; he then flips her onto her back and he thrusts on top of her (we see his bare chest, abdomen, back and partial buttocks).
 A few nude statues show women with bare breasts and abdomens and men with bare chests, abdomens, buttocks and genitals. A woman wears a low-cut dressing gown in a few scenes (we see cleavage). A woman wears a low-cut dress that reveals cleavage and her bare back in several scenes.
 A wife asks her husband to stay in her room one night; he kisses her hand tenderly and leaves. A husband and his wife hug. A man and a married woman hug and speak tenderly to each other; they then hold hands and move close to kissing when they are interrupted. Men and women dance at a reception.

Queen Marie VIOLENCE/GORE 3

 – Scenes of war are shown with men fighting (no injuries are visible) and we hear about thousands of men dying in war.
 Humanitarian aid is delivered to people and we see them pressing in a crowd to get loaves of bread and they ask for food and medicine for their children; one woman says that their children are starving. A man on a horse chases a woman on a horse and cuts her off to make her return to a palace. A young girl has a bad dream and goes to her mother’s room where they climb in bed together to calm the child.
 A man yells in frustration when his pleas for assistance are dismissed by leaders of other countries and he storms out of the room a couple of times. We hear about wartime and that when Russia withdrew from Romania there was a fierce German invasion. There are several discussions of a treaty having been signed by Romanian leaders that was never ratified. A woman pleads with her adult son to return home with her, and she threatens him with the loss of his appointment to the throne if he does not. A man and a woman argue bitterly over a dining table among other political representatives. A woman and her adult son argue bitterly in several scenes and she talks about having had his marriage to a woman she does not approve of, annulled. A man and his adult son argue over responsibility. A husband and his wife argue about their adult son and blame each other for not being present during his childhood. There are several arguments about royals getting involved in politics, and how this is not appropriate. Men scheme to use the press to plant stories that will undermine a planned trip by the queen to plead for Romania’s unification. A man refers to a woman as, “Just a woman showing off her wardrobe.” A man says, “These Balkan countries don’t really know what they want” in a dismissive manner. A woman tells a man, “Don’t patronize me.” A woman tells another woman to “scold them sternly,” referring to men with political power. A young man tells his mother that he does not want to return to Romania and his mother scolds him for disrespecting his country. People talk about the “Bolshevik threat.” A man sneers at a woman and tells her that her desire for a Romanian unification is “Utopian.” A young man yells at his mother and calls her efforts a total waste of time and money. A woman leaves her home after her husband does not support her efforts and she feels betrayed.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
