"no Brasil: A Outra ou "Duas Irmãs, Um Rei" It is impossible for me not to compare this film with The Tudors, since it tells the same story. I absolutely adore Natalie Portman and I'm also very fond of Scarlet Johanson's work, and they both did a great job playing the Boleyn sisters, but I have to admit that the tv cast was much better.... Eric Bana's performance as King Henry VIII was very disappointing. I guess Henry Tudor will always have Jonathan Rhys Meyers' face to me. É impossíve"

The Other Boleyn Girl

“The very definition of guilty pleasure (assuming you like this sort of thing, of course). It's predictable, super melodramatic and at times way too fast-paced, but it's VERY unlikely to bore you. In fact, the fast pace is probably the reason for that, so maybe it makes more sense to commend the filmmakers for making The Other Boleyn Girl a swift-moving film, as it makes it feel involving, even if it leaves you feeling like there's a few too many plot holes.

As the obvious central figure of the story, Natalie Portman deserves particular recognition here. Her Anne starts out as a vulnerably jealous older sister. Her pain is more than perceptible to the audience. We then get an interlude in which she does not appear on-screen for a certain amount of time (during Anne's exile to Fran” read more

"King Henry VIII of England and his wife Katherine of Aragon are having marital problems over the inability to sire a male heir. Henry summons the Boleyn family to his court. The Boleyn's original plan is to have Anne be Henry's mistress. After initial misgivings, Anne pursues this liaison as a means for her eventually to marry into royalty on Henry's approval. However, Henry instead sets his sites on the more innocent Mary, despite she already being married to the equally innocent William Carey."

"Two sisters fight for the love of a king. Unfortunately, that king was Henry the eighth and so only one ends up with her head still on her shoulders."

“Risk nothing and you gain nothing.

Apparently the makers of this film risked something when they cast two American actresses - albeit talented - into the roles of two famous British figures in history: Mary and Anne Boleyn. The latter is known for being the ill-fated second wife of King Henry VIII (Bana), while the former, unlike her sister, is hardly mentioned in history books (well, those which I have read, anyway). The film starts off with Sir Thomas Boleyn (Rylance) talking to his wife, Lady Elizabeth Boleyn (Scott Thomas) about the marriage offer of William Carey (Cumberbatch) to their eldest daughter, Anne (Portman). Instead of giving them Anne, he offered his younger daughter, Mary (Johansson) instead. Flash forward to many years later, Mary is getting ready to be married ” read more

"Kent Picture of The Other Boleyn Girl Knole's romantic courtyards and deer-park were used to reflect the typical Tudor surroundings, to be King Henry VIII and his court's Tudor playground. A scene was also shot by one of the magnificent windows, as the set design team felt it was the back-drop that they had been looking for. Knole is a complex and beautiful house, which has links with kings, queens and nobility, as well as literary connections with Vita Sackville-West and Virginia Woolf. Kin"

""Really? For my good? Well, I'll try to remind myself of that while I'm in exile, and you're here in the king's bed, not challenged for our father's affection! That it was for my good and not yours!" "Well, if it isn't the Boleyn Whores." "Observe the ladies of the court. See how they achieve what they want from their men, not by stamping their little feet but by allowing the men to believe that they, indeed, are in charge. That is the art of being a woman.""

The Whole Thing

“This was a good, complete movie. It had drama, and intrigue, and gorgeous sets and costumes, well acted and well directed. No it's not one of the 100 best films ever made, but it might make my top 10 for the year. We all know it's based on the historical dramatic book of the same name, and thereby know that it's not completely accurate. Most important of these inaccuracies is that Mary's son is not fathered by Henry. But the dramatic effect, especially for those who don't know that much about the King's mania for a male heir, is powerful and does illustrate Henry's fickleness. Kirstin Scott Thomas was especially great in her small but powerful role and the scene of the sisters at Anne's beheading really was riveting. Likable characters in sincere situations, excellent cinematography ” read more
