Les Condiments Irréguliers
France | 2011 | 30:00 | Fiction, Live Action
The French Marchioness de Brinvilliers is a depressed woman of the French aristocracy who leads a dull life in her castle, dominated by her husband, an "important" man, her small daughter and the servants. Attempting to end her days with rat poison, she resolves to test it on one of her maids. Rather sucessfully. She discovers a passion for poisoning, and she considers it an art. One by one, she kills her husband, her daughter and the greater part of the well-bred people that come around for a visit. She finds her life’s purpose, yet her life ends with her being burned at the stake. In her finest garments, she happily meets her end having finally done something with her life. But even the Marquise knows, all good things must come to an end.
Irregular Seasoning is loosely inspired by the life of the French Marchioness de Brinvilliers (1630-1676).
