=======================================

This is a most remarkable movie. It’s easier to say what it isn’t than what it is. But since the positive is always more useful than the negative, I have to make the attempt.

It is drama, romance and comedy of manners set in the dainty, cruel, sensual and superstitious world of pre-revolutionary France. It is horror mystery and monster movie that bring home a well-known but still underrated lesson, namely that there is no greater monster than Man. It is a spooky buddy movie with the French atrocities in the New World and a touch of Native American mysticism as background. It is an action movie with plenty of martial arts, but nothing like the puerile Jackie Chan stuff. It is a fanciful, Dan-Brownish story about spies, conspiracies, secret societies and anything else you can think of. It is all that and then some! It even verges on science fiction (or fantasy, rather) with matters like suspended animation and – but this is giving away too much.

Somehow, miraculously, Stéphane Cabel combined all this in a single screenplay that actually makes sense. Well, sort of. You must make some allowances. You mustn’t expect too much. If you don’t demand rigid realism and minute historical accuracy (how stupid some people are!), you’ll be all right. The script shows firm grasp of character and deft storytelling that keeps some surprises until the end. This is above all a fairy tale, but it’s not for children at all. It is mature in every sense of the word. If you don’t expect what was never meant to be there, you’re not likely to regret those two and a half hours.

Even more miraculously, Christophe Gans turned the whole thing into coherent, well-paced, beautiful, haunting, violent, stylish, disturbing and thought-provoking piece of entertainment. He is apt to overdo the slow motion, but it’s no big deal. He does compensate with flair for drama and his own brand of visual poetry. Certain images, even whole scenes, from this movie I have found searing ever since the first time I saw it eighteen years ago.

There is some fine acting into the bargain. Samuel Le Bihan is rather compelling in the difficult role of Chevalier de Fronsac, a naturalist, philosopher, traveller, adventurer and womaniser: a man of many talents. Mark Dacascos is properly cool as his cryptic Native American pal. Émilie Dequenne, besides being quite lovely at the age of twenty, is convincing as the ingenuous Marianne. Vincent Cassel all but steals the show with one his scariest performances. This Jean-Francois is one hell of a psychopath! If you know Bernard Farcy only as the goofy chief of the police from the Taxi series, you might be surprised by his calm and sinister demeanour here.

Monica Bellucci as a mysterious Italian prostitute is a nice bonus. She appears nude for a few seconds, which is the chief attraction of the movie for some people. One of these glimpses is beautiful indeed. The camera hovers above one of Bellucci’s rather fine breasts as it is being transformed into a snow-clad hill. Memorable moment!

The additional scenes in the Director’s Cut are listed on IMDb. My “German” version seems identical to those released in the US and Canada, but not quite the same as the UK version. The seven additional minutes certainly improve the movie; the story makes better sense with them. I don’t know why IMDb claims the Director’s Cut is 151 or even 152 minutes long. My copy is only 144 minutes (2:24:26 to be exact) and certainly includes all five scenes listed under the US/Canadian version. The description of them is accurate, though.

IMDb is slightly less accurate about the last of the five deleted scenes that can be found on the second disc. It is actually two scenes. Before the one with Sylvia and the two-way mirrors, there is a brief exchange with Beauterne right after Fronsac prepares the fake Beast. There is also a “sixth scene”, a five-minute trailer which includes some moments that didn’t make it to the final cut. All deleted scenes are very short. Their long overall duration here (40 min) is due to the extensive commentary by Christophe Gans, including plenty of fascinating behind-the-scenes footage. He was right, on the whole, to cut those scenes. They are not that important, and the movie is long enough anyway. But it’s nice to have them on the bonus DVD. Likewise the two long documentaries. Both really make you appreciate the sheer toil that lies behind a movie like that. ( )
