2 Works in Vatel (2000)
The letter that Anne de Montausier left to her bastard daughter Marie, talking about her father, François Vatel and her love for him while her youth , finding a noble man in a world of "snakes" like Anne named the Louis XIV court inside her own mind.
The same Court that she left dishonoured, that killed to Vatel, the love of her life, father of her daughter, but who wanted Vatel with more vehemently than the most passionate woman. For first time Versailles wanted a lover that never loved her.
Not just the king Louis saw Versailles like a woman, but Vatel too. One simple chef knew what the king pretended. One simple chef humiliated all to a court, depriving it of his genius.
The Marquis de Lauzun has no need to make things easy on the steward Vatel, especially when the man dares to speak to his wife.
