Set in Medieval France, La Passion Beatrice explores the coming of age of a young woman. The film is very bright and colorful, in contrast to the dark themes. The brightness works well to maintain the outlook of youth, of hope, of optimism in the face of the meanness of middle age life. In contrast to the brightness of Beatrice is the darkness of her war hero father who has become a vicious bandit manor lord.
Quite strong, even if a fairly repulsive story.
Watch this once on video with the subtitles covered so you can concentrate on the imagery.
