Movie Info

Benoit Jacquot directed this offbeat tale of an unscrupulous man's hold over a lovely young women, set in France in the 1860s. Josephine (Isild Le Besco) is the beautiful but reckless daughter of the wealthy and well respected Doctor Hughes (Bernard Rouquette). One day, a ragged hermit named Timothee (Nahuel Perez Biscayart) arrives in their village, and Timothee is immediately taken with Josephine, while she seems similarly fascinated with him. Doctor Hughes is intrigued with the strange but charismatic drifter, and invited him into his home, where he managed to impress everyone, even Josephine's beau Paul (Mathieu Simonet), with his talent for magic and hypnosis. Doctor Hughes and Paul change their opinion of Timothee when he subjects Josephine to a brutal rape, but when he leaves the village, Josephine opts to leave with him, and the Doctor wonders if she's going of her own free will or if he's mesmerized her into doing his bidding. Au Fond Des Bois (aka Deep In The Woods) was an official selection at the 2010 BFI London Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

It's more of an endurance test for the audience than a mystery
