Jacques Rivette’s radical reinterpretation transforms this earthy tale of white-hot love and fury in the English countryside into a coolly stylized, almost ritualistic chamber drama. Relocating the story to a chateau in 1931 France, it downplays the central romance—here between the rather-more-detached-than-usual Roc (Lucas Belvaux) and Catherine (Fabienne Babe)—foregoing blazing passion in favor of a mannered, Gallic moodiness. The look is a bit like a sun-dappled Cezanne watercolor, while the soundtrack intermittently blasts Bulgarian folk music. What results is a fascinating, boldly iconoclastic experiment in literary deconstruction. Print courtesy of the Institut Français.
