Sissi, Part III: Fateful Years

Illness, political instability and rumors of adultery weigh upon Sissi, who summons up all her courage to master her fate

In the third part of the ‘Sissi' film series, the young empress once again has to resist her mother-in-law's intrigues. While emperor Franz Josef is in Vienna, Sissi travels to Hungary with a count, who is devoted to her. She wants to mollify the Hungarian noblemen who tend toward rebellion. Though she can dispel rumors originating from Vienna about a secret affair with the count, a serious lung disease, however, forces her to get treatment on the island of Corfu. Franz Josef and Sissi meet in the provinces of Italy, and due to Sissi's overwhelming charm, they manage to gain the favour of the Italian population.
