French actress Julie Delpy has been a mainstay in American indies and foreign films now for over two decades, and for her sophomore directing effort she chose to star in a tale of one of perhaps the most infamous female psychopaths, Elizabeth Báthory, a 17th century Hungarian countess who was said to have murdered young virgins, under the assumption that bathing in their blood would give her everlasting youth. Well, it's definitely not what you'd call 'feel good cinema,' but it definitely earned a great deal of praise for Delpy both as an actress and a filmmaker.
