The Synopsis for Vatel (2000) 720p

In 1671, with war brewing with Holland, a penniless prince invites Louis XIV to three days of festivities at a chateau in Chantilly. The prince wants a commission as a general, so the extravagances are to impress the king. In charge of all is the steward, Vatel, a man of honor, talent, and low birth. The prince is craven in his longing for stature: no task is too menial or dishonorable for him to give Vatel. While Vatel tries to sustain dignity, he finds himself attracted to Anne de Montausier, the king's newest mistress. In Vatel, she finds someone who's authentic, living out his principles within the casual cruelties of court politics. Can the two of them escape unscathed?

The Reviews for Vatel (2000) 720p

VATEL: Good actors, a good film but certainly not the best one of 2000Reviewed byItaly-WeddingVote: 7/10

Gérard Depardieu is known for his historical films, in which he his master. Films like 'Balzac', 'The Iron Mask'... are a few of them. But this films isn't every historical it is always about food and the please the king Louis XIV. It was well played but there wasn't a good story. Uma Thurman, Tim Roth & Gérard Depardieu gave good performances but this film was to flat. The end was good, it wasn't a happy end, but maybe was a sad end the best choice.

That the film was spoken in English was better then it would be French spoken. The film was not a high-flyer but was not awful. We can remember it as one of the few historical films of Mr. Jouffé.

Rating: 7/10 or ** 1/2 out of ****

A Must SeeReviewed bygkgkoenigVote: 8/10

If you enjoy historic/period films, this is one to see. There is a weak link - Ms. Thurman- but her performance does not ruin the whole. I confidently proclaim all other performances top notch, from the "Sun King" to the title character, to the vast staff in the kitchen of the Prince de Conde's estate in the countryside. Excellent! Transporting! The effort and attention in production is exemplary and never gets in the way of the mood of the movie and the viewer being sucked in. It is an an example to try to match. "Vatel" is a convincing travel back in time to the opulence, ridiculous behavior and systems in the royal court of 17th C. France. The viewer really feels like a fly on the wall, observing the behaviors, politics, seductions, binding and imprisoning codes of conduct and misconduct that were easily paraded by the royal court. I enjoy this film to this day despite a couple dozen viewings.

Historical DramaReviewed byaa4353Vote: 7/10

I enjoyed this movie due to the historical treatment of how politics played out during the time of the European kingdoms. Money is always the problem and the money is always from the poor for the selfishness of the rich---some things never change. Vatel like so many perfectionists of their crafts comes to the realization that no one cares--not even his employer! Good film with underlying truths that quite possibly could be reviewed in today's world. If you have visited castles in Europe you will enjoy getting a feel about how the sub-basements were used--no more complaints about your kitchen. Gerard Depardieu gives a good performance and the costumes and scenery are exquisite.
