Editorial Reviews

Audrey Tautou (Amelie) stars in famed director Claude Miller s (A Secret) final film, a gorgeously photographed adaptation of Nobel Prize® winner François Mauriac s 1927 novel about one woman s fight for love against the social norms of French provincial life.

In the pine-forested Landes region in southwest France, young Thérèse (Tautou) has married wealthy but arrogant Bernard Desqueyroux (Gilles Lellouche, Little White Lies) and is now part of the oppressively traditionalist Desqueyroux family. Although able to live in the lap of luxury, Thérèse soon realizes that her role is to be forever subservient to Bernard and act as little more than his accessory. When her best friend (and Bernard s younger sister) Anna (Anaïs Demoustier, Time of the Wolf) falls madly in love with a handsome young Portuguese man, Thérèse is tasked by the family to persuading Anna to forego her planned nuptials. But as she witnesses first-hand Anna s passionate determination to keep her lover by her side, Thérèse finds her own desire growing and soon sets out to free herself from the provincial conventions that threaten to keep her forever repressed.

Heartfelt, touching, and featuring an emotionally charged performance from Tautou, THÉRÈSE is a glorious testament to one woman s unwavering quest for true love.

This film boasts wonderful sets, clothes, music, and cinematography. The acting is all first rate also. Much of the story is told with a minimum of strokes, so don't expect to have it all spelled out. There are also no clear-cut answers or endings, so if that drives you crazy you might want to skip it. If you enjoyed the last film by Miller/Tautou - Secret - you'll probably be up for this one. I'd compare it to the classic Merchant/Ivory films.

3.0 out of 5 stars THERESE Is A 'Love Story' Only the French Could Tell November 22, 2013
Often times, character studies are difficult to translate from the script to the screen. That may be one of the trappings of the creative process – it’s easy for the author or a screenwriter to fully understand the gradations of character, but putting all of that up in lights takes an awful lot of talent. Talent of a producer. Talent of a director. Talent of the actors. If any individual piece is out of place, then the entire examination might come apart at the seams, leaving those trying to grasp it all with only hints of what to make of it all. It doesn’t mean that the film will be wasted; it only means that it probably won’t be appreciated as deeply as all originally intended.

The same could be said about life, after all.

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and/or characters. If you’re the kind of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I’d encourage you to skip down to the last three paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you’re accepting of a few modest hints at ‘things to come,’ then read on …)

Young Thérèse (played by the darling of French cinema herself, the lovely Audrey Tautou) spends her days in the beautiful, wooded region of Landes in southwest France running through the pines with her best friend, Anna (an equally lovely Anais Demoustier). To keep their families together, Thérèse weds Anna’s brother Bernard (Gilles Lellouche, in an understated performance).
