Domain movie scene

Béatrice Dalle is a troubled intellectual on a path to self-destruction in Domain.

The always-provocative Béatrice Dalle (Betty Blue) stars as a troubled mathematician in the 2009 French drama movie Domain.

On the threshold of adulthood, 17-year-old Pierre (Isaïe Sultan) becomes obsessed with his aunt Nadia (Dalle), a flamboyant intellectual whose alcoholism and fatalistic view of life is leading her on a path to self-destruction. As Pierre discovers his budding sexuality and his relationship with Nadia becomes increasingly tangled, he attempts to save his aunt from her troubles — and herself — with tragic results.

Written and directed by Patric Chiha, the movie was received positively by critics during its international film festival roll-out and limited run in U.S. theaters in January 2012.  Dalle, whose history of substance abuse has been well-documented over the years, garnered particularly strong notices.

There are no bonus features on the DVD.
