Probably for two reasons: The 24.12.1837 was her birthday and the “Sissi”trilogy from the 1950s, with Romy Schneider in the lead role, contains enough Lard and seasoning to the roast Goose. Love and passion, happiness and a sense of family – and then this terrible Asthma – should be the pillars on which our memories of the sentimental costume drama. And, of course, Josef Meinrad as Gendarmerie-Major Böckl, the comic Element.

the romantic heart-pain-the history, the Ernst Marischka tells us in “Sissi”, has little to do with reality, we feared, of course, always. So one-dimensional life is not just.

Giorgia Marras, Italian-born French home, introduces us to in “Sisi” a woman who was self-aware, politically gifted, and courageous, however, the court could not enforce. The tried desperately to your personal interests as well as their freedom to enforce – what was her mid-1860s, finally, gradually, by was as rarely as possible in Vienna.
