Audience Reviews for Violette (Violette Nozière)

  • Oct 08, 2008
    [font=Century Gothic]"Violette" is a passable movie wherein director Claude Chabrol adds a few curveballs to his usual straightforward style in telling the story of Violette(Isabelle Huppert), a teenager in the 1930's, who hangs out with her friend Maddy(Lisa Langlois). Bored with the routines of the working class existence in her parents'(Stephane Audran & Jean Carmet) apartment, she turns to get what she wants by lying, stealing and prostituting herself. In return, she contracts syphilis from a medical student(Fabrice Luchini). However, her ineffectual parents still think of her as the little girl she once was, not that far in the past. But people change, children very rapidly which includes Violette who is now standing on the cusp of adulthood. This is a state of transition enunciated by having an adult actress in the title role which also ensures that nobody gets arrested.[/font]
