  • During the pre-revolutionary reign of Louis XVI, a young engineer travels to Versailles to petition the king to help him save the people of his region from a mosquito infestation. Upon his arrival, the naive country squire discovers lust in the form of a widowed countess, love in the form of his host's beautiful daughter, ultimate power in the form of wit, and the ultimate weapon in the form of ridicule. Academy Award Nominations: Best Foreign Language Film.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...Elegant....There's a contemporary lesson in this somewhere..." -- Rating: B
    Entertainment Weekly

    4 stars out of 5 -- "RIDICULE thrives on slippery language, delivered precisely....It's a tale of dirty water and dirtier wit."
    Total Film

    "...What is fascinating about RIDICULE is that so much depends on language, and so little is really said..."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "A masterclass in costume drama....[A] sumptuous and sensual tale of an idealistic young aristocrat's battle of wits at the court of Louis XVI..."
    Sight and Sound

    "RIDICULE is a spirited period romp with a justly celebrated opening....Charles Berling excels as the provincial nobleman..."
