Despite its radical assertions, La Fée Sanguinaire has some restraint, most noticably in its narrative mode – the fairy-tale. The film even begins ‘once upon a time…’ Yet, paradoxically, that restraint, which is really a presumed distantiation, allows Lethem to over-state his case without ridicule – his extremism is all the more convincing.
