Benoit Jacquot's engrossing film tells a story we know well, seen from a point of view we may not have considered.

Historical drama set in the early days of the French revolution is intelligent Euro eye candy at its most lavish.
Benoît Jacquot's film is shackled to a blah bourgeois leftism.
The story refuses to combust; it's a strangely unsatisfying combination of bloodless observations and unresolved sexuality.
