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 The Marquis des Arcis, an assumed libertine, falls madly in love with Madame de La Pommeraye, an attractive widow withdrawn from the world.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.

Critic Reviews for Mademoiselle de Joncquières

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

"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.

A pleasurable way indeed to pass two hours at the cinema.

September 10, 2018 | Full Review…

Based loosely on a short story by Denis Diderot, this is decadently delicious and was among the top three films seen at the festival.

September 27, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

That the fact of the whore pretending to be the virgin reveals more about the surrounding society than the deception itself is fascinating, yet it happens too late-and the film is a bit too taken with itself to notice.

As comical and critical as it is decadent, Emmanuel Mouret's film eventually hits a sour note that's unfortunately too predictable for a work made by a man.
