  • Corsage

Vienna 1877. Empress Elisabeth (Vicky Krieps – Phantom Thread) turns 40. Bold and stubborn, Sisi is far from the public image of the gentle and demure favourite of the people. Bogged down by anxiety, obsessive rebelliousness and frustration with her public image and political role, Elisabeth sets herself increasingly demanding physical challenges and takes frequent trips around Europe. Awarded for best performance in Un Certain Regard at Cannes, Marie Kreutzer’s (The Fatherless – ZFF 2011) Corsage tackles the sterile and kitschy legend of Sisi, offering a more honest and nuanced insight into the life of the fascinating empress.
