    A must see for fans of the late star of Spartacus: Blood and Sand Andy Whitfield. The dark atmosphere is truly handled very well and works together with great acting to support this awesome story.

    This highly stylized portrait of a loveless marriage at the beginning of the 20th century merges a claustrophobic theatricality with dazzlingly cinematic wide-screen compositions (the sumptuous cinematography is by Eric Gautier).

    Gabrielle inspires mixed feelings; it is dialogue heavy but a treat for the eye.

    Though it won't appeal to everyone, the concoction actually works, thanks to Huppert and Greggory's powerful negative chemistry.
