Olivia

Olivia
By Jacqueline Audry
1951 – France – 95 min

Olivia is a remarkable work by one of France’s first groundbreaking female filmmakers, Jacqueline Audry. Plunging the viewer – and the main character – into a true lion’s den, Audry depicts a 19th century boarding school for young girls. The two mistresses of the house, Miss Julie and Miss Cara, are engaged in a veritable turf war, and a war of the heart. Competing for the affections of their students, they rouse passion, hatred and unexpected reversals of loyalties.
