Weird
11 February 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Of the 10 films I saw at Sundance, this one was my least favorite. The film was supposed to be set in the late 1800s, but something just didn't ring true. The script was adapted from a play, and it didn't translate well to the screen. Patricia Clarkson did a fine job portraying the baroness, an American who supposedly married for love and moved to France, where she took on an "enfant savage", aka wild child who had been raised by pigs as a special project. Her husband in the movie was such a sadistic, sick, mean, woman hating jerk, that it was extremely difficult to see how she had fallen in love with him. I suppose it was realistic that the "pig" character had awful ugly sores all over her face, and particularly around her mouth, but they were so distracting that I found it hard to look at her. I cannot recommend this film
