Synopsis

Julien and Marguerite de Ravalet, son and daughter of the Lord of Tourlaville, have loved each other tenderly since childhood. But as they grow up, their affection veers toward voracious passion. Scandalized by their affair, society hounds them until, unable to resist their feelings, they flee. A contemporary fairytale about desire, passion, hope, love, and death. A timeless story, beyond all morality.

 

Subject

TRANSFUGE

Valérie Donzelli proves that even if love stories generally end badly, they make for great cinema.

LES INROCKS

Marguerite & Julien's fragile grace unfolds once it breaks free from its plot and borrows its rhythm from genre cinema, featuring a superb siege scene or criminals-on-the-run in Bonnie and Clyde mode, presented in hyperstylized photograms.

PREMIERE

Hardcore make-believe and romanticism, sublimely beautiful, sometimes grotesque, lyrical and pop, all at once.

CAHIERS DU CINEMA

It exudes a confidence and candor, a joy in making movies that gives us the desire to go along with it.

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

Only in France: A fairy tale about incestuous siblings.

SCREEN INTERNATIONAL

Declaration of War director Valerie Donzelli’s fourth feature reworks a script abandoned by François Truffaut, based on the incestuous love affair between an aristocratic brother and sister in rural France at the dawn of the seventeenth century.
