Based on Charles Perrault's grisly, much-loved fairytale, 'Bluebeard' tells the story of young Marie-Catherine (Créton), child bride to an aristocratic ogre (Thomas) with a reputation for murdering his wives. Can the newly crowned Princess employ all of her cunning to outwit her husband, and escape a potentially unpleasant fate? Imbued with Freudian overtones, this chilling and sexually implicit tale is brought to the screen by controversial director Catherine Breillat ('The Last Mistress', 'Fat Girl', 'Romance') with a characteristic wit, intelligence and visual daring. Evocative of writer Angela Carter in theme, this is a potent and quietly engrossing observation of young female sexuality and rebelliousness, set within lush photography and art direction. ★★★★ "Complex, comic and discomforting" - Sophie Ivan, Little White Lies ★★★★ "Breillat has produced a witty, graceful and unusually tender reading of the story" - Sukhdev Sandhu, The Telegraph ★★★★ "Refreshingly modern" - David Jenkins, Time Out
