A grim and gripping retelling of the French folktale Bluebeard, this movie sure has its highlights and great scenes. Director Breillat puts her own touch to this Charles Perrault fairytale about a wealthy lord with a long black beard that has glints of blue and known to have plenty of wives who die from unknown reasons. Sprinkled with issues bordering on female curiosity and sibling rivalry it has a provocative touch as only Breillat can do, who's known for films that depict sexuality, gender conflict and intimacy.  Try to check this out and get to know this good ole folktale done in a way that's psychologically challenging.
