Poisoner, murderer, monster, mother, victim. Historical reality is transformed through a dramatic vision involving fratricide, incest, violence, and perverted maternal love, all filtered through the fascinating character of Lucrezia Borgia. Written in 1832, Lucrèce Borgia is considered Victor Hugo’s most powerful work, seen in this adaptation for the stage at the Comédie-Française in Paris, with costumes by Christian Lacroix. Presented in collaboration with Chicago’s Alliance Française. In French with English subtitles. DCP digital. (Description courtesy of Pathé)
