Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.

Movie Info

An aspiring actress accepts a leading role in a film version of Dostoyevsky's The Possessed. Dissatisfied by her performance, the eccentric filmmaker begins a rigorous course of indoctrination, sexual domination, and acting lessons that leaves the mentally-exhausted girl unable to distinguish between the real world and that of the film.

Critic Reviews for Femme publique, La

All Critics (1)

Though Kessling can be interpreted as a stand-in for Zulawski, Femme Publique is not his autobiography in the same way his previous film Possession was.
