Jean Gras in Mademoiselle


1966 NR

The denizens of a bucolic French community would be stunned to discover that the town's prim-and-proper schoolteacher (Jeanne Moreau), who prefers to be addressed as "Mademoiselle," is the anonymous sociopath who's been perpetrating destructive acts in their midst. But the devil didn't make her do it: Her motivation is all about frustrated passion for an Italian lumberjack (Ettore Manni) in this lusty melodrama directed by Tony Richardson.
