In Detail

Rosalie lives in a small French village of the 1870s, she is a young woman unlike any other. However, she hides a secret: Rosalie was born with a face and body covered in hair, a peculiarity she has concealed her all her life to stay safe, shaving to fit in.

Until Abel, an indebted bar owner unaware of her secret, marries Rosalie for her dowry. Will Abel be able to love Rosalie and see her as the woman she is? This is a delicate drama about a woman who refused to accept social beauty standards of her time, with terrific charismatic lead performances from Nadia Tereszkiewicz as Rosalie and Benoît Magimel as her husband. The film has plenty of applications to modern times - not least of all in its appeal for tolerance of others’ differences - but the film works best as a quiet study in accepting oneself.
