Plenty to think about
4 July 2000 | by (Toulouse, France) – See all my reviews

Here is a thoughtful, deeply researched and well-written film. An extra effort has been made to convey a realistic atmosphere of France under the rule of Louis the fourteenth. The film excels in showing the complex relationships between all the main characters, notably the King and his Lady friend (Isabelle Huppert). Every move is pretty much double-edged here, and religion is as excessive as the rest in its ideas and deeds. Huppert (MADAME BOVARY) delivers a forceful performance as the king's mistress, devoted to the education of young women.

The whole thing is very austere-looking, which must not detract you from enjoying a bit of brain-stirring entertainment. Nice soundtrack courtesy of ex-Velvet Underground member John Cale (AMERICAN PSYCHO).
