  1. Vinod Narayan's rating of the film Queen to Play

    Beautiful French Movie has Kevin Kline and Sandrine Bonnaire playing the lead roles. The story is very simple but powerful about a house maid who falls in love with the game of chess and gets help from the doctor in whose house she does cleaning services. Recommended!

  2. MirandaTess's rating of the film Queen to Play

    The way in which the chess board represents the connection between the maid and the doctor is beautifully portrayed.

  3. Lorna Singh's rating of the film Queen to Play

    The always excellent Sandrine Bonnaire saves this story of underdeveloped characters. More suited for those with a passion for chess. But..that gorgeous scenery..

  4. Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film Queen to Play

    A lovely and beguiling platonic romance about a maid who finds mental liberation from her mundane life through chess. A new twist on a familiar formula, replacing sexual liberation with freedom of the mind. Beautifully constructed and acted.

  5. Ally the Manic Listmaker's rating of the film Queen to Play

    While the story and directing were just okay, Sandrine Bonnaire ultimately makes lemons out of lemonade and ends up acting the heck out of a role that would be portrayed in a very boring manner by most other actors.
