castles of the Loire
A docudrama entitled ‘het mysterie van de Loire’
(only in Dutch).
In this program the most important
castles and historical outposts of the Loire-area will be shown in an
unconventional way. The most outstanding personalities who pulled the
strings in the Loire-area during the Renaissance pass the revue. The history of the heart of
France during the late Middle Ages will be unveiled in this cinderalla-like
fairytale. A lonesome weary of life interior-attendent experiences the
unimaginable luck to receive a time-machine which brings her back to the
Loire in the year 1489. Her adventures are undescribable. Catharina de Medici, François-I
and his mistress Diane de
Poitiers, Henry-III but also Charlemagne and the novel-figure Quasimodo
come to life in this program. The splendid pleasure-castles are the
intriguing background in this fascinating documentary. The religious
tensions and the inquisition are not forgotten. A beautiful program for
all who wish to survey the french Renaissance in an alternitive way.
Interesting for all ages.
