Blue Beard

Synopsis

An assuredly feminist reimagining of the Charles Perrault fairytale. Ensconced in a twinned structure composed of the two contemporary sisters reading the story and the two sisters who live it, Bluebeard introduces viewers to a hairy-faced aristocrat known for killing his wives. One girl seeks to avoid meeting the same fate, and Breillat's unhurried pace allows the film to burn slowly, reinterpreting the power dynamics between lord and bride, bride and sister.
