Directed by Tony Richardson (Tom Jones), and featuring a powerful central performance from Jeanne Moreau, Mademoiselle is a mesmerising psychological drama, and an artistic, disturbing exploration of the darkest of carnal desires.
Released on Blu-ray/DVD (Dual Format) with extras including a newly commissioned audio commentary by Adrian Martin and the 1982 BFI Production Board film Doll's Eye, this is the first time Mademoiselle has been out on Blu-ray in the UK.
An enigmatic and malign school teacher (Jeanne Moreau, Jules et Jim) torments the residents of a small French village with seemingly motiveless acts of violence and destruction. When her erotic obsession with an ostracised outsider causes her behaviour to become yet more extreme, tensions in the community reach boiling point - but will the villagers see beyond their prejudices?
