Movie Info

1750, Louis XV reigns over the kingdom of France. The Marquis des Arcis, an assumed libertine, falls madly in love with Madame de La Pommeraye, an attractive widow withdrawn from the world. She resists him for years, and finally gives in to her secret desire. Yet the Marquis quickly tires of her and proposes after two short years to split remaining good friends. Mad with sorrow, Madame de La Pommeraye seeks revenge on the Marquis and enlists the services of two prostitutes, Madame de Joncquières and her daughter, a young 20-year-old woman of rare beauty.

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (2)

  • Mouret manipulates our sympathies effortlessly as the story zigzags its way... to its ultimately surprising and quite satisfying resolution.

  • Anyone who loves "Dangerous Liaisons" - in any of its iterations - should rush to cue up "Lady J," a period romance with a similarly wicked sense of comic melodrama.

    March 7, 2019 | Full Review…
  • "Mademoiselle de Joncquieres" takes a stealthy and slow-burn approach before fully revealing its true colors as a shrewdly choreographed roundelay of scheming, seduction and revenge in the spirit of "Les Liaisons Dangereuses."

  • Lush costumes, languid pacing and the elaborate syntax of the 18th-century all create an exquisitely measured effect.

    September 11, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • A pleasurable way indeed to pass two hours at the cinema.

    September 10, 2018 | Full Review…
  • It's a period drama, no doubt, but you'd never describe it as musty.
