Synopsis

Catherine Breillat directs this highly stylised retelling of the classic fairy tale. The film weaves together two stories, each involving two sisters. In the first, set in the 1950s, Catherine (Marilou Lopes-Benites) torments her older sister Marie-Anne (Lola Giovannetti) with readings of the scary tale of Bluebeard, the ogre who murders women and eats small children. In the second, another pair of sisters - Anne (Daphne Baiwir) and Marie-Catherine (Lola Creton) - are seduced into Bluebeard's lair, where the beautiful and virginal Marie-Catherine becomes the ogre's last wife.
