Polly Morgan is a taxidermist. However, she does not mount the heads of beautiful, exotic wild beasts on family crests or huge slabs of wood. Oh no. Miss Morgan only uses animals that have died of natural causes…road kill, basically. Yet she manages to create incredibly beautiful and vivacious pieces of art, maintaining a certain degree of life and soul despite the fact that her subjects are most definately d-e-a-d.

L’Enfer

The 1994 film by Claude Chabrol is an adaptation of the uncompleted 1964 version of Georges Clouzot. The film opens with the wedding of Paul and Nelly, a handsome hotel owner and his beautiful young wife. They soon have a son and life seems picture perfect as they run their lake-side hotel during what seems permanent summer. The story tracks the slow and terrible demise of Paul’s mental state, as he descends into violent paranoid delusions in regards to Nelly’s fidelity.

Emmanuelle Beart plays the two sides of Nelly with great aplomb; the pretty, chirpy new bride and mother whose fawning love over her husband does nothing to quell his warped perspective; and the woman of Paul’s hallucinations, the irresistible femme fatale who sleeps with every man she comes across. Francois Cluzet is similarly gifted at portraying the steady disintegration of his confused mental state, and his powerlessness to overcome the devastating delusions from which he suffers.

The ending of the film is ambivalent – Paul is not even sure what happened. He is, at this point, stark raving mad, and she is either dead [brutally murdered], or tied to the bed, drugged, beaten and compeltely traumatised. Rather than saying ‘The End’, the film finishes with ‘Sans fin…’, emphasising the looping effect of Pauls disturbed psyche and Nelly’s tragic  inability to escape from him.
