EUGENIE GRANDET MOVIE
BASED ON BALZAC'S NOVEL
And that will be second of his novels to be adapted into a movie this Autumn beside Lost Illusions! EUGENIE GRANDET has been released this
week over in France helmed and adapted by Marc Dugain! Felix Grandet (Olivier Gourmet) reigns supreme in his modest house in Saumur where his wife and daughter Eugenie (Josephine Japy) lead a distraction free existence. Extremely avaricious, he does not take a favorable view of the beautiful parties who rush to ask for his daughter's hand. Nothing should damage the colossal fortune he hides from everyone. The sudden arrival of Grandet's nephew (Cesar Domboy), an orphaned and ruined Parisian dandy, turns the young girl's life upside down.
Sadly, the first reviews are not favourable, citing the flatness in acting and script and no chemistry between the stars which is rather obvious in the trailer itself.
