Thérèse Reviews

Annlee Ellingson
Paste Magazine

Because she's so internal, the shtick threatens to grow dour and whiny. But mostly there's a mystery and an acknowledgement that there's not always a concrete reason why.

The movie may look pretty and may plod, but it also leaves a bruise.

The Playlist

Therese Desqueyroux, not the nuanced period drama it should be but is rather more like a banal, pseudo-thoughtful and monotonous episode of Masterpiece Theater.

If the banality of life within the Bordeaux gentry is the point, then the ensuing oppressiveness is immaculately depicted through precise performances and camerawork-just don't call it emotionally engaging drama.

A classic story competently told, Thérèse Desqueyroux is chocolate-box heritage cinema at heart, but a perfectly respectable and emphatically French epitaph to Miller's long career.

Claude Miller's final film is tastefully upholstered, but the narrative generates little heat, empathy or momentum.

Claude Miller's swan song not only shares its main character's name but also her tempered disposition.

Concrete Playground

An austere, sombre character study that aims for restraint but more often hits dour. Momentarily lifts off in a handful of beautifully shot dream sequences where Therese acts her inner violence, but these respites are not quite enough to shake the fog.

An ideal movie for anyone in the mood for a beautifully shot, well-acted period drama.

Feels as flat and repressive as Therese's life.

June 30, 2013

[It] takes a long time to get to the meat of the story and, as a result, Tautou's performance ends up being too aloof when it should be enigmatic.

Philip French
Observer [UK]

A handsome, solidly acted period movie about deliberately dislikable people, it's the swansong of a director who was a longtime assistant to François Truffaut.

Thérèse Desqueyroux points up the book's sociological insights and then suffocates them in an excess of luscious period detail.

Eye for Film

Miller and cinematographer Gérard de Battista take their palette from Vermeer, with Thérèse less like a character than a piece of still life at the centre of muted earthy shades.

This is London

Tautou, eschewing her usual smiley charm, is a revelation, and Miller's final film a fine testimony to his art.

It is a perfectly respectable if bloodless version of the François Mauriac novel that shocked readers in the Twenties.

Radio Times

Tautou's central performance [is] utterly mesmerising as her implacable inner demons push her into conflict with everything around her.

Peter Bradshaw

It's an opaque performance from Tautou in many ways, understandably so, and perhaps the film does not fully get inside her mind and heart; a confident, robust work nevertheless.

Audrey Tautou in serious drama has one expression, the solemn pout.
