BEATRICE
La passion Béatrice
1987, AMLF, 130 min, Dir: Bertrand Tavernier

This unflinching portrait of life in medieval France stars Bernard-Pierre Donnadieu as François, who returns home after years of battle a changed man. Daughter Béatrice (Julie Delpy) idolizes him at first, but her love is challenged by François’ growing brutality. “No other Middle Ages period film looks quite like this one - and only a few, like Walerian Borowczyk's 1971 BLANCHE, tell such seemingly merciless and anti-romantic stories.” – Michael Wilmington, Los Angeles Times.
