Storyline

After Thérèse is acquitted of trying to poison her husband, Bernard Desqueyroux, she recalls the events that lead to her being charged. At the beginning of her marriage to Bernard, the only respite she found from the stifling provincial life was the company of her sister-in-law Anne. After Anne left, she found herself trapped in a loveless marriage to a boring man, whose only interest was in preserving his family name and property. By accident, Thérèse found that an increase in Bernard's medicine made him very ill. Written by Will Gilbert

Good novel adaptation
30 November 2002 | by (Tarragona Sppain) – See all my reviews

One of the best adaptations of a novel done by French cinema. A very fine description of a rural based setting, and social relationships and interaction in a context of rural bourgeoisie. Maintains Mauriac's novel finnesse and introspection. A powerful play by the actors, and a very high sensibility in the storyboard. The paradox is that Franju is a surrealist and here it performs a naturalistic view.
