an invented Thérèse Raquin
26 November 2002 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

If someone wants to see this film, I advise better to read the book of Emile Zola first then to see the film, and you will agree with me that Marcel Carné did nothing else than changing the real story of the book written by Zola. Simone Signoret is a Thérèse sometime shy, sometime aggressive as she really was in the book, Vallone had better performance as Laurent, but not very much convincingly. The end of the plot is not the one shown in the film. It is strange to see a distorted French story in a French-made film, but this is the case. Hopefully Zola did not see it.
