Princess Grace of Monaco Monaco's royals on Friday accused those behind a biopic starring Nicole Kidman as their mother Grace of hijacking their family history, just days before the film premieres at the Cannes Film Festival. In a statement, Prince Albert II and Princesses Caroline and Stephanie said the film did not accurately portray events involving their mother, the Hollywood actress who married Monaco's Prince Rainier III in 1956.
"Grace of Monaco", directed by France's Olivier Dahan, will officially open the 67th Cannes festival on May 14, when it will be simultaneously released in France and several cities around the world.
But even before its release, the film has been mired in controversy, with Dahan locked in a standoff with the film's US producer Harvey Weinstein and the Monaco royals slamming it as pure fantasy.
"The Prince's Palace would like to reiterate that this feature film cannot under any circumstances be classified as a biopic," the Monaco royals said Friday.
"The trailer appears to be a farce and confirms the totally fictional nature of this film. It reinforces the certainty, left after reading the script, that this production, a page of the Principality's history, is based on erroneous and dubious historical references.
"The Princely Family does not in any way wish to be associated with this film which reflects no reality and regrets that Its history has been misappropriated for purely commercial purposes."
The Monaco royals occasionally attend the opening of the Cannes Film Festival, but it is unlikely that they will do so this year.
The film also stars British actor Tim Roth as Prince Rainier, and focuses on a six-month period in 1962 when Alfred Hitchcock offered Grace of Monaco a chance to return to acting -- an opportunity she eventually turned down.
The Cannes festival defended the film on Friday, saying it would add positively to the "Monaco legend".
"The film is not a biopic in the strictest sense, from life to death," Thierry Fremaux, the festival's artistic director, told AFP.
"It's the expression of the right of every artist to poetic license."
