They year is 1877 and Elisabeth of Bavaria is celebrating her 40th birthday. How does she feel now, a woman whose youthful looks defined her, yet are fading with the advancing years? What kind of private life existed for a sovereign, whose position in society was defined by her husband rather than by her opinions? In the same way her corset confines her body, the restrictive way of life at the Viennese court is stifling her personality. The myth of Empress Sissi returns, this time played by Vicky Krieps, who deservedly took home the award for Best Performance in this quick-witted reinterpretation of history.
The director was born on 1977 in Graz, Austria.
