"Mademoiselle de Joncquieres" takes a stealthy and slow-burn approach before fully revealing its true colors as a shrewdly choreographed roundelay of scheming, seduction and revenge in the spirit of "Les Liaisons Dangereuses."
Lush costumes, languid pacing and the elaborate syntax of the 18th-century all create an exquisitely measured effect.
A pleasurable way indeed to pass two hours at the cinema.
Based loosely on a short story by Denis Diderot, this is decadently delicious and was among the top three films seen at the festival.
That the fact of the whore pretending to be the virgin reveals more about the surrounding society than the deception itself is fascinating, yet it happens too late-and the film is a bit too taken with itself to notice.
As comical and critical as it is decadent, Emmanuel Mouret's film eventually hits a sour note that's unfortunately too predictable for a work made by a man.
This is an uncommonly talky picture which perhaps overestimates the fascination of forensically thorough analyses of 18th century society gossip.
