French New Wave filmmaker Jacques Rivette offers a surprisingly faithful adaptation of Balzac’s 19th century novella, a genre-bending romantic tragedy cum thriller rumination on the sexes. French stars Guillaume Depardieu and Jeanne Balibar portray a lovesick soldier and his flirtatious duchess, both of them pawns in the Parisian aristocracy.
