A slower paced twentieth century Madame Bovary,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Therese Desqueyroux [DVD] (DVD)
Beautifully shot in Les Landes, and well acted, this initially compelling film about Therese's marriage to a man for whom she apparently cares little is a narrative which carries with it echoes of Anna Karenina, Madame Bovary and Effi Briest... yet somehow it disappoints...
The taciturn figure of Therese is difficult to understand and by the end of this understated drama, my sense of anticipation was disappointed so that I simply thought... is that it?
