Manners Maketh ...

7/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Dysfunction is a staple in the Art world, the novels of William Faulkner, Carson McCullers, etc would be lost without it - as would Southern Gothic as a genre, and it spills over into cinema, often in adaptations of novels, plays such as Beth Henry's Crimes Of The Heart, virtually anything by McCullers, Tennessee Williams plus the usual suspects known to us all. Here it pops up again in what is clearly a little known French movie (why else has no one written about it) that is well worth a look. A troubled young man, virtually a drifter, is hired by an eccentric woman who really wanted a girl as a housekeeper but settled on a male, part of whose duties include looking after a son who refuses to leave his room. It might be predictable but it's still a fairly decent effort.
