Watch: French NSFW Trailer & 2 Clips From 'Farewell, My Queen' Starring Diane Kruger & Lea Seydoux

You can imagine the boardroom pitch can't you? "It's the story of Marie Antoinette...but with some girl on girl action." Well, according to our review at Berlinale 2012, the introduction of lesbianism into the tale of France's tragic queen is to no great effect. In fact, the verdict was that it was "overwrought and strangely lacking in drama, staggering under the deadening weight of an uninvolving central character." Well now comes the chance to start forming your own opinions after taking a look at a NSFW trailer and two clips from the film starring Diane Kruger, Lea Seydoux and Virginie Ledoyen.

Oh, there's just one small problem though -- they're all in French. If you speak French then you're in luck (and please don't hesitate to tell us whether they're actually any good in the comments section below) but if not, then why not join me in looking at the pretty sets and costumes. If all you're here for is a bit of lesbian action then sadly you're not in luck either, but there are some breasts to ogle at that will satisfy your cravings.

Benoit Jacquot's film hits French theatres on March 21st, but no news yet on U.S. distribution. Take a look below. [via Bleeding Cool]
