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 philosophical tale
23 April 2003 | by (Montréal, Québec) – See all my reviews

"Le Marais" is truly an impressive work of art for a first-timer film-maker like Kim Nguyen, and it would be impressive from just any experienced director. It is a very emotional fantastic/philosophical tale, exploring the notion of the scapegoat.

The story is very well written, the actors are good and the images are breathtaking. The new techniques Kim Nguyen used for the optimization of the colors are revolutionary.

A must-see (if you're open minded and willing to see something different for a change)!
