Therese spends her days confined behind the counter of a small shop and her evenings watching Madame play dominoes with an eclectic group. After she meets her husband's alluring friend, Laurent, she embarks on an illicit affair that leads to tragic consequences. Written by
A story and acting that came across as not believable. A plot that would barely make the level of the cheapest paperback crime/lover tripe. The writers and director didn't even bother to make the dialogue authentic. Example, words being spoken that could only come from a 21st century slang dictionary, e.g. "Hey " and other idioms and interjections that would fit in with today's rap lyrics.
Tired formulaic storyline of seafaring father leaving his daughter with wicked relatives while he ventures into hostile sailing; promises to return; of course, doesn't and daughter grows up more enslaved than loved; then forced to marry wicked family's uncouth son. Now living in continued misery she finds true, but forbidden love. But, Shakespeare to the rescue - doesn't, predictably, end well.
