A great and subtle period romance drama. Wonderful scenery and costumery. Maiwenn and Johnny Depp are amazing. Only a fan of historical love stories will appreciate this movie. Worth seeing.

The was a beautiful love story that I could watch again and again. Jeanne was not only an engaging character but she and Le Roi portrayed so much with so few words. Truly a treat to watch and reminded me why I love movies again.

It is a beautiful piece with great writing and acting. Johnny Depp pulls you into the story and keeps you rooting for the happy ending. It will make you laugh, cry, and appreciate the person you love!

More frustrating than a misfire, “Jeanne du Barry” suffers instead from near total myopia, roaring to life with wit and ingenuity when the constellations align and the lead’s star can shine, and dwindling before the risk of any possible eclipse. The film burns hot and bright — and quickly flames out.

With all the recent controversy surrounding Depp, not to mention Maïwenn herself, the result of their collaboration is a handsome period piece that feels both flat and shallow, and certainly far from any scandale.

This is not great or memorable filmmaking but the power of the story and some of the performances make up for that.
