Storyline

Paris 1577 - King Henri III gives famous couturier Pic Saint Loup a crucial diplomatic mission. He must go to Spain to make a magnificent gown for the wedding of the King's nephew to the daughter of a Spanish noble. The trouble is that the real creative brains behind Saint Loup's outfit is his Moorish assistant, while his perfumer is a Marano Jew and his hairdresser is out, loud and very proud. And Catholic Spain, in the grip of the Inquisition, is no place for Arabs, Jews and homosexuals (Saint Loup is anything but heterosexual). To make matters worse, his secretary is an undercover Protestant plotting revenge for the St. Bartholomew's Day massacre and the father of the bride turns out to be the Chief Inquisitor of Cordoba.

Jugnot scores again.
11 March 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Stand-out in the current French Film Festival is the Gerard Jugnot ROSE & NOIR, which seems to have something to upset everyone, getting knocking reviews as dumpy Gerard comes on as a fashionista sent to Inquisition era Spain, setting out with a team that includes a Protestant terrorist, a Jew, an Arab, a "sodomite" and an eleven year old Prince, whose bride's gown he is delivering. Filmed on the same lavish costume period scale as Jugnot's lot's IL NE FAUT JURER ... DE RIEN! and it's even better.

This needs to be seen on the big screen.Great design, great images, great score and some great performances. As well as Jugnot, Bernard le Coq has come into his own as a character actor and the Spanish grotesques dominate. The ending could be stronger but what the heck?
