  • Abstract: In her manga La Rose de Versailles, Riyoko Ikeda introduces Oscar to the narrative of Marie-Antoinette’s life. Oscar is a transvestite girl who plays a central role in the representation of the revolutionary process particularly through Oscar’s progressive realization of poverty and injustice stemming from nobility privilege. Jacques Demy chooses to center his film on Lady Oscar, but diminishes the positive role of the aristocrat (as he diminishes her sexual ambiguity) and embodies the revolutionary process in the valet André, a commoner.
