The Lady and The Duke
Lucy Russell, Claude Dreyfuss
Directed by Eric Rohmer
The Lady and the Duke, a striking tale of intrigue set during the French Revolution, stars Lucy Russell as a Scottish aristocrat who uses her wiles on Philippe, Duke of Orleans (Jean-Claude Dreyfus), to further her own political and sexual agenda. Old master Eric Rohmer, 82, uses new tricks in the form of painted backdrops inserted digitally to create a virtual reality. Rohmer goes Lucas — who could have guessed?
