Storyline

Two social outcasts in 19th century Eastern Europe, Alexandre and Ulysse, become friends and settle down to live alone on the edge of a marsh that is reputedly haunted by demons, monsters and goblins. These two men have been outcasts all their lives. Alexandre was raised in a nomad family that traveled from town to town, being rejected by the people of his homeland. Due to his physical abnormalities, Ulysse has always been pushed aside ever since his childhood. When a strange murder is commited in a nearby village, the peasants turn their suspicions on Alexandre and Ulysse, because they are different. In the eyes of the villagers, they are demons that must be hunted, burned and killed. Written by Ariane [otaku_ariane]

Impressive work by newcomer Nguyen
21 March 2004 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Kim Nguyen's Le Marais is a great tale of the good and the evil. Add to that a touch of magic and fantasy and you've got an entertaining film by this newcomer. The story somehow reminded me of the great Of Mice and Men. The photography is nice and it's interesting to see what can still be done with a limited budget. And the performances of the lead actors are good. There's a certain sense of mystery that add to the film. Good to watch.

Out of 100, I gave it 78. That's good for **½ out of ****.

Seen in Toronto, during Cinéfranco, at the Famous Players Canada Square Cinemas, on March 30th, 2003.
