A supressed and sociopathic school teacher (Jeanne Moreau) unsuspectedly torments residents of a small French village with acts of violence and destruction. An erotic obsession with an ostracised outsider causes her behaviour to become yet more erratic but, as tensions in the community reach boiling point, will the villagers see beyond their prejudices?
Directed by Tony Richardson (Tom Jones) and featuring a powerful central performance from Moreau, Mademoiselle is a mesmerising psychological drama – an artistic and disturbing exploration of the darkest of carnal desires.
