Description: Georges Méliès's first attempt at Cinderella was in 1899. That movie was extraordinary then for having multiple scenes and a semblance of a narrative; additionally, the test of dissolves as transitions in it influenced another filmmakers for years to do the same. Méliès was the cinema world's preeminent leader then. By 1912, however, that was no longer the case; frankly, as evidenced by this feature, his style had become dated. Moreover, Méliès had begun to adopt techniques from another filmmakers, such as direct cuts instead of dissolves, and there's even a match on action shot during the slipper trying-on scene.

"Agnes De Rien" is a film in which the plot does not matter much,it's all in the atmosphere ; an old castle where four folks live : an old gaga lady (Yvonne De Bray)who became crazy after her husband's death and who thinks she is Mrs Lafarge ,a notorious poisoner;her daughter ,Alix,married to an alcoholic (Paul Meurisse) ;and a servant.Enter Agnes (Danielle Delorme) who married Alix's brother ,who left the castle a long time ago to lead a bohemian life (we're said he is a painter).Agnes came to see her mother-in-law -that's what she says- to receive some cash to support the artist who ,like so many others,seems to be broke .This is a lugubrious movie,not for all tastes : not exactly an action-packed movie,it depicts a family in a state of total decay."Agnes De Chaligny" is now "Agnes De Rien" (Agnes of Nothing).Her affair with her brother-in-law is anything but romantic. The negative of a fairy tale.A very black cinematography.
How referential is this? Allow me count the ways. Gene O'Neill would certainly have been on mourning terms with these dysfunctionals measuring out their lives in the old homestead where the angst is as high as a melancholic's eye and if it comes to that Edgar Allan Poe may well have had an architectural hand in the genesis of the Gothic pile. There's a sequence right out of Wuthering Heights, a nod to Jo Von Sternberg and ... oh, well, you receive the picture. Somehow Daniele Delorme never really registered with me despite the odd tasty credit such as Voici les temps des killers which was still six years away when this was made. Paul Meurisse on the another hand has long been a favourite. As other poster has told this is all about atmosphere rather than plot and in that department I have to tell dix sur dix.
I everytime test any film with Paul Meurisse, and in Agnès de Rien, from the very beginning, his hero is strong, dark and insane. Typical Gothic atmosphere in a castle where the delicate Danièle Delorme arrives to see her family, Paul Meurisse and Yvonne de Bray, discovering their scary method of life. Very several characters but insane sequences.From beginning to end, Agnès de Rien is absolutely hopeless and desperate, no sign of comedy. The director Pierre Billon is also the adapter, and his filmography might reveal us some another dark films with the same despair we search in Clouzot or Duvivier, remember l'Homme au Chapeau Rond with Raimu.
