Le rouge et le noir

France, 1997
Drama, Romance, TV Movie


Moving right along in two 100-minute installments Jean-Daniel Verhaeghe’s 1997 adaptation of Stendahl’s Le rouge et le noir (red for a military career, black for a career in the church) illustrates the plot and, to a surprising degree, the characters of the 500-page 1830 novel.
