Movie Info

In her 50s, French mother Anne Charpin-Vasseur (Nathalie Baye) makes a most uncommon choice: she decides to run for mayor of the town she lives in. Among the obstacles she faces are an unfaithful husband (Bernard Le Coq), mysterious leaflets that accuse her family of having collaborated with the Nazis during World War II, and a blossoming love affair between her returning son (Benoît Magimel) and his stepsister (Mélanie Doutey) that is cheered on by Aunt Line (Suzanne Flon).

Audience Reviews for The Flower of Evil

  • Mar 16, 2010
    A rather competent drama, but not spectacular in any way beside the absolute cuteness of Melanie Doutey, who has the sweetest and most loveable smile I ever seen on screen. The incest angle in my opinion is rather weak and sensationalized, as are the murders past and present. This story is more like a mild, luke warm cup of coffee. I just prefer mine to be stronger and hot. Not a bad watch though

    A decent suspenseful film that reminded me of the V.C. Andrews books with all the buried sinister family secrets. Some families just cannot escape evil, especially when it comes from within!

    A decent if not completely unremarkable French thriller. It isn't that there's anything wrong with The Flower of Evil, per se, but I feel like I've just spent 100 minutes watching absolutely nothing new. The themes are interesting if not completely broad, the characters are nothing special, and the humor seems oddly thin. It's a very pretty, expertly acted waste of time.
