I hope it would be available in DVD some day.

Well...we always need a villian or villianess in the story, and Archduchess Sofie fill the task as the Wicked Witch.

I wonder how many parts it has. Is it like a mini-series ? The DVD covers everything right ? I wonder if they have sub-titles for us non-Germans.

I saw now part I. And I must say, that the Romy movies are better.

sunday will be the last part on the german tv on ZDF...dont know when that will be on austrian television.
i found the dresses pretty loved it!! and i found it cool this movie you see her first child sophie die..made me cry to be honnest.
its more based on reality than the 50 movies but also to much stuff made up to make it more "romantic" or something.
but the scene from the 50s with the ball on franz birthday when he asked sisi to ask for mariage was more closer to the truth than how it went in this movie.
i was anoyed by some scenes when they did alot of wrong on the truth like Marie Charlotte said.
nevertheless its worth watching!!
i need to say i think this is as good as the romy schneider pieces..its also reminded me of it in some scenes... and the german voice of sisi also reminded me as the romy schneider voice.
to bad the movie has 2 parts and as ending (the same as in the romy schneider movies) its the crowning of hungary. i preferred to see her whole life storie.
i msut say sophie is much sensitiver than in the one in the 50s. she was like a "mean devil" kinda thing and here she is more like she does the way she does for what she thinks is right for sisi in a nicer way than the 50s movie.

now how stupid they said dont compare this one with the 50s movies (thats what the makers said) but still we do that.

Can't wait to see it ! Well if it ends on the Hungarian coronation, it did not include Mayerling then. Sad.

No, but the movie includes Rudolf's birth. I have already seen the little boy who portrayed the crown prince.
Ich aber breite trauernd aus
die weiten weissen Schwingen,
Und kehr' ins Feenreich nach Haus -
Nichts soll mich wieder bringen.

well the part last night only included her sister nene and her brother gackel....dont know if the maker knows that sisi had more brothers and sister lol.
dont get exited... it is a good movie for just a costume drama (like i love) but well people like us who know about the real elisabeth its kinda dissapointing.. so i kept out of my mind that it was based on her real life that makes it more better to watch...well just see it like the ernst marischka movies...and i love to see those movies also even if there isnt much truth in it but all more romantized.

Yes, that was funny.
Was the countess of Esterhazy not unfriendly to Sisi and I thought Sisi didn´t like her. But in this movie Lily Hunyady was not her favourite lady in waiting. And where was the beard of Maximilian? And Karl Ludwig?
The movie is more outspoken but Romy is the number one!
The last point: the puppy dog eyes of Sisi :)
