I love the 3 films about Empress Elisabeth (Sissi) of Austria because it is so nice with fairly tales. Elisabeth is played by Romy Schneider. In the real life Sissi and her husband Franz Joseph didn't love each other as much as it is portrayed in the 3 movies. In the end, they despised each other and she travelled a lot. Most of her 4 kids died before her (one of them committed suicide). So you shouldn't believe too much in what is shown in the movie, but it is sweet with fairly tale.
