Director Benoit Jacquot (Sade, A Tout de Suite) favors pronounced camera zooms, which become more ominous as his satirical drama morphs into a psychological crime thriller.

Jacquot doesn’t have the same cachet as either of these titans [Renoir and Buñuel], but he’s no slouch either, especially when it comes to vibrantly depicting the intersection between sexual aggression, political power dynamics and female experience. Still, his version can’t help but feel like a second-tier take on this familiar story. It compares just as poorly to the veteran French director’s best work, particularly 1997’s Seventh Heaven and 2012’s Farewell My Queen.

The anti-bourgeois indignation of Mirbeau’s vision is expanded in this film, which can be read as expressing a nearly entirely dismissive skepticism of progressive notions of “empowerment.” This will likely make it unpopular in certain circles. But the immediate effect Jacquot achieves, with quiet droll and some considerable dread, is bracing.
