Julie Bonaparte (née Clary) and Joseph Bonaparte in Désirée (1954)

LOOK AT THEM IN THE BOTTOM RIGHT GIFS argh so cute

Julie and Joseph in their turn always just sit and stare deeply into each other’s eyes and says things no one else can understand and giggle and seems insolently happy, but at the same time somewhat idiotic.” - 15 year old Désirée is apparently very done with their cuteness

You know, I bet we could get the general audiences/non-historical-fanatic general public/the great unwashed interested in the First Empire period beyond “hah, Napoleon was a short weirdo” if we got a really cracking good remake of “Desiree”.

Oh God yes.

I mean it’s a Brando movie, come on, someone must be interested.

And well then use the book as source material because they should.

And it would be glorious. Especially if it was a series though I’d get behind a movie as well.

yesssss!! it would work much better as a series and it could go really into details and imagine all the epic scenes and pretty dresses and cool dialogues.

and of course there would be a lot of interest, Désirée was always a popular book.

All the pretty dresses. And uniforms. 

I mean, I could see it as a movie. But I love so many things in that book, and it’s in diary format, so I think it’d work well as a series. Though I can see how big movie would appeal to more people. They’d have to cut out so many things and characters though, and it’d make me sad. Not that they wouldn’t if it was a series but still…

Really I will be happy with anything as long as they don’t go the road the one from 1954 did with WE NEED TO MAKE THIS A LOVE STORY BETWEEN NAPOLEON AND DÉSIRÉE BECAUSE BRANDO. 

Things I would want in it though, especially as a series:

  • Napoleon’s awkward proposal
  • The bridge and carriage scene with Berna
  • The awkward reunion with Berna and Joseph having the worst dinner of his life
  • Lucien
  • Talleyrand being the sneakiest thing
  • Murat totally being Napoleon’s wingman
  • I-will-name-everyone-I-like-also-your-son-Napoleon
  • Meeting Beethoven
  • the King of Rome being adorable
  • Désirée putting make-up on Berna (believe me, that’s a sad scene)
  • Désirée actually getting to become Queen of Sweden and don’t just END THE MOVIE BEFORE THAT
  • Side characters like Marie, Brahe, other military people that were adorable, and others

hey, don’t give me tired and troubled Berna feels!!

let’s not forget Désirée/Rosen BrOTP. they were the best.
