Rating:

Sissi: The Fateful Years of the Empress is an Austrian film released in 1957. Written and directed by Ernst Marischka, it is the last film of the romantic trilogy about an Austrian queen, Sissi (Romy Schneider). Set in the 19th century Austria, this is a historical drama about family and romance. Emperor Franz Joseph (Karlheinz B''hm), too absorbed in his work, neglects Sissi and does not allow her to see her own daughter. After Sissi contracts tuberculosis, Franz allows Sissi to bring her daughter to travel with her across Europe. Ludovika (Magda Schneider), her overtly optimistic mother nurses her daughter back to health. The clumsy bodyguard, Oberst B''ckl (Josef Meinrad), returns to offer comic relief as each time he arrives in a new country, he struggles to learn the language and falls in love with Sissi as she tries to teach him a new language. Once she has fully recovered, Sissi reunites with her husband and daughter in Venice.
