The Duchess of Langeais (Ne touchez pas la hache)

(2007)
Jacques Rivette’s adaptation of Balzac’s tale of drawing room passion is superbly played by two strikingly odd actors, Jeanne Balibar and Guillaume Depardieu. She’s the aristocratic Antoinette, a seasoned coquette who mocks the awkward courtship of her socially clumsy suitor, a Napoleonic General and war hero. Pushing him too far, she finds herself becoming the pursuer. [NZFF08]
