The year is 1926. In the Landes region, free-spirited Thérèse Larroque, the daughter of a wealthy pinery owner and radical-socialist politician, marries Bernard Desqueyroux, another pinery owner. Although she does it half-heartedly, she thinks that marriage may help her to "sort out all the ideas in her mind". But her disappointment is great. Her wedding night is all but fascinating and when she becomes pregnant she realizes the baby matters more to Bernard than herself. While Thérèse stifles in her husband's beautiful residence among stiff in-laws who do not think high of her, ideas keep on roaming her mind.Written by
Therese (Audrey Tautou) endures an unhappy marriage of convenience to an arrogant landowning neighbour. Her best friend, Anne, begins a passionate affair with a local man who is regarded by her family as unacceptable as he is not from such wealthy stock. When Therese learns that her husband's medicine contains arsenic she deliberately gives him overdoses that bring him close to death. Her life eventually deteriorates to the point where she commits suicide.
Not a particularly engaging film. It was difficult to sympathise with the main character and it would have made more sense for the film to focus on Therese's best friend whose affair had been undermined.
