Hélène, portrait of a serial killer

You have here the portrait of an actual French female serial killer, a sort of old fashioned Poison Ivy, who lived in the nineteenth century, in Brittany. It is well known that the women serial killers are assassins most of the time for financial reasons, on the contrary of men who kill because they are simply crazy, psychopaths or lunatics. The women kill the wealthy husbands whom they marry with only to get the money from their deaths. In this moving film, it is not the same. The young woman poisons nearly every one whom she meets kills because she had a very difficult childhood, after her mother died, after her father let her know that he did not love her - very intense moment - and after she was raised by her god mother, whom she killed. And this was the very beginning of her deadly odyssey. Yes, it is a very desperate and poignant film, although some points are rather a little weak in the script, and some scenes corny, maybe because of a poor Benjamin Biolay's performance, not convincing at all. I highly appreciated the fact that it is never explained why the lead character makes so much effort to let the people know that she kills, and show so many evidences of her lethal behaviour. The sequence with the old man, played by Jean-Claude Drouot, is unforgettable. The old man has understood that the girl killed many people before and he accepts the fact that she prepares a cup pf tea for him, and he even thanks her for this. And then don't miss the assassin's face. Outstanding performance. Only for these few seconds, I will watch the film again.
