Par Ordre du Tsar (At the Order of the Czar) is liberally based on an incident in the life of famed composer -- and notorious lover -- Franz Liszt. The story concerns the romance between Liszt (Jacques Francois) and the beautiful Russian princess Caroline (Colette Marchand). Alas, Caroline is married to a gross, vengeful prince (Michel Simon) who has no intention of letting her go. The disconsolate composer enters a monastery, setting the stage for the film's bittersweet finale. Throughout the film, the 19th-century Hungarian Revolution rages on, though the audience is treated only to glimpses of this epochal upheaval.
