THERESE

Release Date: 8/23/2013

 

About Francois Mauriac's legendary 1927 novel of French provincial life has been gloriously brought to the screen by the inestimable Claude Miller in his final film. Sumptuously photographed to capture the full beauty of the pine-forested Landes area in southwest France, THERESE DESQUEYROUX is a beautifully conceived drama of exquisite taste. Marvelously played by the luminous Audrey Tautou, Therese is a heroine hewn from the same stock as Madame Bovary or Anna Karenina, suffocated by her provincial marriage. Therese has married less for love than for convenience, but it is not long before the casual disinterestedness shown her by her arrogant husband, Bernard (Gilles Lellouche), sets her mind in motion. Life is easy at first, as Bernard's pinewood estates keep them both in the lap of luxury. But when Therese's best friend Anne (Anais Demoustier), who also happens to be Bernard's younger sister, falls madly in love with a handsome young Portuguese man, Therese begins to see what she has been missing in her life. Corralled by Bernard's family into persuading Anne to forego her planned nuptials, she begins to see first-hand the awesome power of passionate love, as Anne will go to any length to keep her lover by her side. Soon, Therese begins her own fight against the oppressive Desqueyroux family.(c) MPI Media
