Quotes

Emma Bovary: I realized that before getting married I was contemplating my coming life like a child. In a theater, um... sitting there in high spirits, and eagerly waiting for the play to begin.

A new convincing film version
16 November 2015 | by reneedelf-17019See all my reviews

I like the film. Finally there exists a version done by a woman showing with sensibility the few choices of life for women in the 19th century.

I thought the actors and actresses were perfect in their role. In the end, Madame Bovary finds herself without friends and solutions. She understands how naive she has been with men and has no woman friend. Her whole world has collapsed.

She can only choose nature as her ultimate friend.

I feel that in this version, Flaubert's book main message is being respected. It is mostly about a woman wanting to experience all the pleasures of life and not being able to do it. Because of herself as well as because of her environment.
