Thérèse Desqueyroux (Audrey Tautou) - Preview

Therese Desqueyroux

Preview by Jack Foley

IN the French region of Landes, near Bordeaux, marriages are arranged to merge land and unite neighboring families.

Thus, young Thérèse Larroque becomes Mrs Desqueyroux. But her avant‐garde ideas clash with local conventions. In order to break free from the fate imposed upon her and live a full life, she will resort to tragically extreme measures…

Claude Millerʼs final film is anchored by a performance of subtlety and depth Audrey Tautou as the titular character and ably matched by Gilles Lellouche as her husband.

Thérèse Desqueyroux is released on DVD through Artificial Eye on Monday, September 9, 2013.
