Storyline

Brigitte and Xavier are a couple of cattle farmers living and working together in Normandy. They have always got on well but now that their two children have left the household, routine and weariness have set in. One night, Brigitte, who has been invited to a party by a group of Parisians in the house next to their farm, lets herself be wooed by Stan, a witty, cool attractive young man. Some time later, giving a visit to a dermatologist as an excuse, she goes to Paris to meet him. But things do not go according to plan. Written by Guy Bellinger

Relentlessly boring
12 March 2020 | by jromanbakerSee all my reviews

This film is totally unworthy of Isabelle Huppert. I can see her in anything, and usually I am astonished by her acting, but along with ' Ma Mere ' this must be one of her worst films. I have not seen all her films, so I reserve judgement. If it has any resemblance to the story of ' Madame Bovary ' it lies in the nature of boredom. Flaubert's novel depicts boredom and dreams and this film is pure and utter boredom in itself. I will give no spoilers as I would be too bored to give away the tedious plot, which in itself is pitifully thin. I thought she was dragged down by the situations the director put her in and frankly the other actors were not on form. I saw this on France 3 and I had hopes and the 1 that I give it is for myself and seeing it to its inconsequential end.
