Based on the novel The Black Book of Father Dinis by 19-century author Camilo Castelo Branco, the French/Chilean filmmaker Valeria Sarmiento has fashioned a sumptuous period piece that ponders the intertwined nature of fate, desire, and duty. The film explores the tumultuous lives of Laura (Lou de Laâge), a peasant maid, and Sebastian (Vasco Varela da Silva), the young orphan in her charge against a backdrop of overflowing passion and revolutionary intrigue at the twilight of the 18th century. An unlikely adventure yarn that strides the continent, from Rome and Venice to London and Paris. In French with subtitles. (103 mins)
