Sissi: The Fateful Years of an Empress

Once again, the last film in the Sissi trilogy of films does not disappoint.  A wonderful film of magnificent settings and beauty.  These films are well recommended.

Sissi at one time leaves the Viennese court and travels to warmer climes.  The backdrop of scenery is magical and the pageantry of the times magnificent.  This is a film which will warm the very soul.  It is lovely..  The music and song and dancing are also wonderful.  The Viennese dances at court seem very different from the traditional folk music of Hungary.  The film is a splendour of romance and

Sissi travels to Hungary Madeira and Italy.  To see this film is a visual beauty

I now look forward to watching the film of Queen Victoria in Dover which complements the set of
the Sissi trilogy.

My best wishes


  1. OMG, Sandra, where are these films? We were in Vienna this summer . . . Sissi's so much a part of the city's history. I love, absolutely love, period history like this. Thank you so much for clicking my author's page. I really appreciate you taking the time. I'm smoothing out A-Z, always nervous there's a typo or some such I or Beta readers missed. Louisiana's history is so complex I'm hoping, really hoping I get it right without turning it all into a dry read. Still, I'm very excited about it all.

  2. Hello Kittie

    Thank you for your message.
    I will look again at your author's page and blog.
    I will also endeavour to post more frequently than I have been lately.
    You may be able to find the Sissi films at a library.
    You must have had a wonderful time visiting Vienna and I look forward to reading about your travels. I will also look out for more of your posts. I enjoy reading about your life in Louisiana and the wonderful stories and insights which you give. Keep up the good work! My best wishes Sandra
