With impressive production design and a strong script, this is an engaging, well made French period drama anchored by a superb performance from Pauline Etienne, though the tone wobbles in the final act and the ending is curiously abrupt.
Nicloux escalates Suzanne's travails at just the right pace, wrestling his final act back from "The Perils of Pauline" territory to conclude with an shocking suggestion which brings the material's themes back to the forefront.
