Paris, 1933. The daughter of a respectable lower middle class couple, Violette Nozière, leads a disreputable double life. Far from being the innocent 18-year-old her parents mistake her for, she spends her nights with dissolute young men in the less salubrious areas of the city. One day, Violette meets her ideal man, Jean Dabin, but he is a scoundrel who soon begins to extort money from her. When her parents discover that she is stealing from them, Violette finds the tension in their cramped apartment unbearable and she is driven to murder both her parents.

I felt I was watching a badly made film with a badly acted cast. I was hoping the film could get at least a little better, but it kind of didn't. I have to be honest, I still prefer the Disney animated version of this attempt. The film's visuals and art direction were exciting, but the special effects were just sad. The film's cast was alright, nothing to rave about, but they at least fit the characters' description, so I have to give the film's some kudos for that.
