Storyline

In a French village, Manou is an Italian logger, virile, with a broad laugh. He can't say no to women's sexual invitations, and jealous villagers blame him for recent fires and a flood. He is innocent; the culprit is "Mademoiselle," town schoolmarm, a recent arrival admired by all, but sexually repressed and obsessed with Manou. She sets the first fire accidentally and throbs watching a shirtless Manou perform heroics. Subsequent catastrophes are no accident and express her mad passion for him. Also, after befriending Manou's son, she turns on the lad, making him miserable and raising his suspicions. Her designs, Manou's frank innocence, and the town's xenophobia mix explosively.

"Dark internal rather than external mystery..."
23 November 2011 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

English producer and director Tony Richardson's ninth feature film is based on a short story by French writer Jean Genet and written by French writer and director Marguerite Duras. It tells the story about a school ma'am who becomes obsessed with one of the locals in a rustic French village whilst the small community is disturbed by a chain of unsettling criminal acts.

This late 1960s independent film is a psychological thriller and crime drama driven by its atmosphere which contains elements of horror, Film-noir, romance and a study of character which is more intriguing as a dark internal rather than external mystery. Tony Richardson's distinctive filming, French actress Jeanne Moreau's understated acting performance as the obscure female protagonist and the poignant atmosphere which continuously surrounds this British-French co-production, makes it a noticeable art film.
