Marquise Of O The

cast: Edith Clever, Bruno Ganz, Peter Luhr

Drama The first of Rohmer's historical films is set in Northern Italy, in the time of the Napoleonic wars. The Marquise is raped in her sleep by her apparent rescuer, a Russian count. Pregnant but ignorant of her child's father, she is spurned by her family. Rohmer skillfully and ironically explores each character's anguish whilst always maintaining a certain distance.
