Thérèse

Synopsis

Thérèse by Claude Miller (France, 2012, 110 min.). Thérèse (Audrey Tautou) is a woman born in the wrong time and the wrong place. Unhappily married to Bernard (Gilles Lellouche), a chauvinistic son of a wealthy family, Thérèse wants the bohemian life that can only be found in Jazz Age Paris. Tautou’s intense performance grows in as her suffocating marriage and isolation in the Bordeaux countryside force her to take drastic action that puts her whole family at risk. Miller’s elegant final film continually plays with audience sympathies in this thought-provoking drama.
