Movie Info

When Europa skips class and meets a magnetic young man named Jupiter, she embarks on a journey of which she knows little as to what lies ahead. Travelling aboard Jupiter's eight-wheel truck, they arrive in a mythical land inhabited by powerful gods who can transform humans into plants or animals in the blink of an eye. Europa watches, listens, and plays in their immortal home, becoming acquainted with Jupiter's friends, Bacchus and Orpheus. As the confrontation between seductive, yet vengeful gods and innocent mortals unfolds, Europa grasps a greater sense of life and love in this revelatory modern-day retelling of Ovid's "Metamorphoses."

Critic Reviews for Métamorphoses

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

[Honre'] does succeed, though, in conveying the joy of storytelling, which has made Ovid's work endure; the engagingly knotty structure is full of playful digressions and tales within tales.

As a work of art, Metamophoses carries many of the traits associated with highbrow French cinema, but never delivers on its ambitious premise.

September 13, 2017 | Rating: 2/10 | Full Review…

In Metamorphoses, writer-director Christophe Honoré tries to domesticate, if not neuter, the strangeness of Ovid's classic tales.

March 23, 2017 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Just like in Handel's day (the operas Semele and Alcina), sex takes center stage for both gods and mortals.

April 4, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Honoré's film aspires to be inclusive, even encyclopedic-through myth, to speak about the whole of the human condition today as Ovid spoke about it in his time.
