Моя смеялась.

"Historians agree that Charles I was totally overwhelmed and exhausted by his much younger, more spirited French wife. Dorothy Tutin perfectly captures the fire and energy of Henrietta Marie, sweeping into the council room and scolding her slow and sluggish husband into action. Moreover, the film also gets the connection between the extremely passionate nature of the marriage and the king's frequent periods of lassitude and torpor. It would appear that the energy required to satisfy Henrietta Marie in the marriage bed simply was more than Charles I could muster. As a result, during the political debates that sparked the war, he appears dull and drowsy,unable to focus on the issues at hand, but strangely drawn to exhaust himself even more in the nightly war with his fiery French queen. Alec Guiness pulls this off perfectly, playing Charles as a man who can hardly keep his eyes open."

А как же Бэкингем? На него же тоже нужна была какая-то энергия?..

Тогда Чарли был молод и полон сил :-D
К тому же, кхм... если вдаваться в подробности, то энергия, как мне кажется, требовалась Бэкингему, а ее у герцога было хоть отбавляй...
