Storyline

Arsène Muselier returns to his home village at the end of the First World War. His only injury is a head wound, which sometimes provokes periods of delirium and fury. As he renews his acquaintance with the people he left behind - his mother, the old farmhand who brought him up after his father's death, his former girlfriend, and many others - he becomes fascinated by the legend of La Vouivre, a creature with the body of a woman who lives in the marsh, surrounded by vipers. One day, Arsène sees the strange woman - she is naked, beautiful, alluring, and he is instantly enchanted by her. Can she be real, or is she merely a creation of his damaged mind...?

Wilson father and son
19 May 2008 | by See all my reviews

George Wilson wrote the screenplay adapted from a relatively obscure Marcel aymé novel.His son Lambert Wilson starred as the hero,a young soldier returning home after fighting in WW1:he was wounded and it had serious after-effects .

In the village where he lives,they tell that a splendid woman swims in the nude in the ponds ,protected by the vipers.They call her "La Vouivre" The ex-soldier falls for her,becomes her lover:she will be the death of him.

The movie was panned as soon as it was released :directing displays no sense of mystery,which was necessary in a supernatural story,but Lambert Wilson and Jean Carmet save the film from tedium.
