MARGUERITE & JULIEN REVIEWED

“Marguerite & Julien” was meant to be a Truffaut film. Thankfully, death spared him trying to adapt a film like this. While it never quite embraces the sleazy nature of historical incest, the film tries to dip a toe in the water. If you’re expecting something like “The Beast”, you’re going to be disappointed. Imagine the Lifetime adaptation of “Flowers in the Attic”, but with low grade Barry Lyndon rip-off style designs.

I find it impressive that a film like this was salvaged, but I’m not sure if it needed to be feature length. Maybe breaking it down as a short to air on TV would’ve fared better. While the film only runs 103 minutes, it feels about 43 minutes way too long. I’ll check out the film again in a few months when I do my Truffaut retrospective. It’s just I was left kinda flat. Give it a stream.
