Film International: Blanche

on BBC Two England

starring Ligia Branice
Walerian Borowczyk brings the passions and cruelties of the Middle Ages into sharp focus against an astonishingly beautiful visual recreation of the period. In a castle in 13th-century France, the Baron and his virtuous young wife, Blanche, prepare to receive their king. The reception is a success but the favourable impression Blanche makes on the King is the first link in a tragic chain of events.
