  • Jacquot makes a persuasive case for a return to the story, with a scowling, watchful Lea Seydoux in the role of a scheming chambermaid.

  • Worth seeing as another entry in the rise of Léa Seydoux, a star of Gallic charisma if ever I've seen one.

  • The immediate effect Jacquot achieves, with quiet droll and some considerable dread, is bracing.

  • Unfolding elliptically, the new film can feel abrupt and unsatisfying, but it's filled with sharp commentary on class and servitude, and [Seydoux] delivers another extraordinary performance.

  • Rather than gain speed and power in its final act, as Joseph's design comes into play, the movie stalls.

  • Has serious narrative glitches and a shaky timeline, but at least it is true to the bitterly misanthropic spirit of Octave Mirbeau's 1900 novel about masters and servants.
