The Independent Culture

In a remote all-girl boarding school in the 1930s, the supremacy of a chic, bohemian teacher (Eva Green) is challenged by the arrival of an even more chic and bohemian Spanish pupil, Maria Valverde.

Having said that, the power balance isn't actually upset very much. There's a flurry of violence at the end, but beforehand the film drifts along as a picturesque, slow-motion montage, with more emphasis on the lighting than on the characters' relationships.
