Melbourne, Jan. 17 (ANI): Prince Albert of Monaco and his sisters have denounced a new biographical film starring Nicole Kidman, as their mother Grace Kelly, as "glamourised and pure fiction."

In a statement, Prince Albert II and Princesses Caroline and Stephanie said that the movie contained significant historical inaccuracies and a series of purely fictional scenes, the Age reported.

The statement read that the Royal Family was granted access to the script and requested several changes to it, which were not taken into account.

The film's producer, Pierre-Ange Le Pogam, said the production was meant to be a work of fiction and confirmed the royal family were consulted.

He said that the palace was aware of the script and made requests for changes and the production team took some of them into account but not all.

He added that the film is not intended to tell the true story of the principality.

French director Olivier Dahan's 'Grace of Monaco,' features British actor Tim Roth as Prince Rainier alongside Kidman.

The film focuses on a six-month period in 1962 when Monaco was in a heated tax dispute with France and legendary actor Alfred Hitchcock offered Kelly a chance to return to acting. (ANI)
