Ne touchez pas la hache

Jacques Rivette France, 2007

Black Irish's rating of the film The Duchess of Langeais

On one level, a variation on La Belle et la Bete where Depardieu is both a human and beastial Marais and Balibar is Maria Cesares as Antoinette de Langeais. Yet also a Lubitsch romance under the gaze of Lang. Protagonists constantly seen walking though doors but never into, or out of, bed, while games which disguised their motives ultimately reveal their obsessions and "the pace that kills along the road to ruin."
