Hubert Monteilhet's novel.......
12 May 2008 | by See all my reviews

"Les Mantes Religieuses " (= Praying Mantis" was brilliantly transferred to the TV screen by Jack Gold an efficient director ("Catholics" "the Medusa touch" ). It was not an easy task ,for it is an epistolary novel a la Choderlos de Laclos's "Les Liaisons Dangereuses" . The story of these praying mantis who eat the male cause they are deadlier than he is,and finally eats each other is full of suspense and black humor,Monteilhet's forte.Cherie Lunghi ( her angelic face works wonders)was ideally cast in this story and all the supporting actors are up to scratch.

Montheilet,who was also a historian ,wrote interesting historical novels about Nero and Joan of Arc.
