Betty Blue (1986)

Unabashedly explicit, at times demented and ultimately tragic, "Betty Blue" is a haunting 1986 film centered on the title character's uninhibited affair with handyman-cum-writer Zorg. Sultry Beatrice Dalle embodies lust the way Bardot did in "And God Created Woman," in 1965 but her character is unpredictable and, as the audience and her lover realize, mentally unstable. What starts as passion ends in terror. Two reactions are plausible: relief at not being entangled in a volatile liaison with a mad, potentially dangerous lover, or an awakened desire to live life more intensely, to love more wildly.
