film synopsis

Festival regular, writer/director Emmanuel Mouret returns with his latest film. In Mademoiselle de Joncquières, we rediscover his signature themes of love and relationships in a period piece. Young and widowed Madame de La Pommeraye (the ever angelic Cécile de France), reluctant at first, succumbs to the charms and relentless courtship of her friend the Marquis des Arcis (Édouard Baer), a notorious womanizer. Scorned by her libertine lover, she carefully crafts the perfect vengeance. Under the pretense of friendship, she willfully traps her trusting friend in an emotional turmoil, slowly shaking him to the core. Justifying her devious plan as a feminist cause against all the men who have wronged women, will make her blind to reason and intensify her cruelty. In this visual time travel to 18th-century France, Mouret lifts the veil of the aristocracy’s customary manners to reveal a timeless tale of love, seduction, deceit and manipulation.
