Catherine Breillat’s BLUEBEARD (Barbe Bleue) Movie Trailer
Check out the trailer for BLUEBEARD (Barbe Bleue) which stars Dominique Thomas, Farida Khelfa, and is directed by Catherine Breillat.
Here is a new twist on the fairy tale of Bluebeard by controversial filmmaker Catherine Breillat, and I have to admit that I am definitely curious to see more of it. If you have seen Catherine Breillat’s previous films, then you know that we can expect Bluebeard to be pretty shocking and outrageous.
And if you’re wondering what song is featured in the trailer it’s called “Les Draps Sourds” by Marianne Dissard, and it has a pretty raunchy music video, which I embedded below if you’re curious to watch it.
Bluebeard Synopsis: Catherine takes great pleasure in terrifying her elder sister Marie-Anne by reading her the infamous tale of “Bluebeard” until the poor girl is so frightened she bursts into tears. She also enjoys performing re-enactments of the fairy-tale in the role of Marie-Catherine, Bluebeard’s last wife. Although all of Bluebeard’s other wives are executed, she is the only one who escapes this fate, being the virgin princess about whose death Bluebeard prevaricates. His deliberation proves to be his downfall, and so it is the virginal Catherine who winds up in possession of the monster’s head, instead of the other way around.
Bluebeard will be released to theaters on March 26, 2010 (limited). Watch the trailer below.
