Sorting the problem out within the family.
26 February 2011 | by See all my reviews

Anne -La Femme Nikita- Parillaud may be a curious choice to portray the Marquise De Brinvilliers but the MTV work was Alain Delon's ex-protégée 's idea and she managed quite well.The criminal who is responsible for several deaths in her own family is shown as a victim of a macho world (her father and her brothers ).And the brains behind her crimes may rather be Le Chevalier De Sainte Croix and the father was probably right when he said that he was his daughter's evil genius and had him imprisoned .The problem is that the movie is too short and it would have taken at least three episodes to tell the story efficiently(the trial ,notably).After her death,some people considered her a saint ,which is often the case with poisoners.
