    Blue Beard seems surprising for the first minute. How should I say this in a couple of words? Well, I just manage to love Blue Beard for just the surprising fairy tale told here.

  1. Breillat directs with her characteristic flair for getting under the skin of her protagonists while taking a particular pleasure examining sisterly bonds and feminist concerns within the context of a fairy tale.
  2. Stylized, pure cinematic retelling of this ancient tale of misogyny will enchant some and bore others.

    This offbeat but compelling take on the tale, arguably the first serial-killer yarn, emphasizes sisterly bonds but still gets to the original story's heart of mysterious darkness with impressive results.
