Storyline

At a wake one night in 1945, a group of aged women recall the life of one of their number. Sixty years before, Thérèse was barely 20 years old when she eloped with her boyfriend, Firmin, a blacksmith, to Châtillon, a town in Provence. Here, she makes the acquaintance of the wealthy Madame Numance, who is known for her good deeds. Realising that Thérèse is pregnant and unemployed, Madame Numance insists that she moves into a house on her estate. Whilst Firmin resents the arrangement, Thérèse soon finds that she can exploit the situation, using her benefactor's naivety and generosity for her own gain.. Written by unknown

mysterious makes boring
30 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

This story is about an attractive manipulative little tramp who gets involved with a wealthy couple,the man played by John Malcovich.Most of the movie follows this situation and the couple's behaviour is so mysterious that the only resaon i kept watching is to see how this is resolved or explained,which never happens.After that the movie goes on but i was already bored and i never cared for the rest which is even more boring.Too bad for the beautifull photography, especially of the french countryside.
