About the Movie
Forbidden passion blazes between a brother and sister in this sexually delirious, rock 'n' roll romance. Working from a script originally written for François Truffaut, boundary-pushing director Valérie Donzelli spins a deliciously dark adult fairy tale in which the relationship between aristocratic siblings Marguerite (Anais Demoustier) and Julien (Jeremie Elkaim) goes from playfully flirtatious to passionately erotic—an affair that tests the limits of what society will accept. A provocative fable about what we’re willing to risk for love, Marguerite & Julien is a one-of-a-kind romance that transcends time, reason, and moral boundaries.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The excruciating experience of "Marguerite & Julien" need only be endured by viewers with an obsessive interest in the least constructive aesthetic currents in contemporary French cinema.
Rotten: The wan narrative at hand fails on several levels, including an annoying amount of intentional anachronistic details that detract rather enhance.
Rotten: Marguerite & Julien's romance is a non-item, but Donzelli sprinkles it with faux naivete, which has the aftertaste of an artificial sweetener. Who would ever want to see this movie?
Rotten: It finds its filmmaker completely lost between impulses to pay homage, play it safe, or offer something--anything--new.
