Augustine

France | 2012 | Alice Winocour

Augustine

Female “hysteria” is the subject of this lush period piece, which chronicles the relationship between pioneering real-life 19th-century French neurologist Dr. Jean-Martin Charcot (Vincent Lindon) and a young, partially paralyzed teen patient suffering seizures (French singer Soko). Though he hypnotizes and manhandles her, and parades her in near-pornographic public demonstrations, the learned, married, repressed scientist eventually finds himself attracted to this poor, uninhibited kitchen maid. With Chiara Mastroianni and Grégoire Colin. “A dark romance of sex and power…Vivid and feverish…Soko is as grave and luminous as a silent-film star.” –The NY Times.
