Sister Auguste, once a Gypsy known as Juliette and a high-wire artist known as L’Ailee, has sought refuge for herself and her illegitimate daughter at a convent. Her ex-lover, the evil LeMerle, arrives disguised as a confessor bent on destroying the abbey and Juliette – unfurling a saga involving sex, drugs, and everything but rock & roll (this being 17th-century France). Sure, Harris (”Chocolat”) can be a little over the top – who knew so many bosoms heaved beneath habits? – but ”Fools” is still an inventive meditation on morality and passion that surprises with a wholly uncompromising ending.
