Synopsis

Away from the movies starring Romy Schneider, we discover the true Elizabeth, Empress of Austria. Beyond the popular imagery of the young Bavarian princess being propelled by accident into the courts of 19th century Europe, Sissi was a rebellious and modern woman with a tragic and painful story.

From the melancholic young girl to the empress whose beauty dazzled Europe, and who got stabbed to death by an Italian anarchist in Geneva, this is the portrait of a woman resolutely ahead of her time.
