A remarkably pretty, if equally dour, portrait of the bored, oppressive life led by the provincial bourgeoisie.

Exquisitely tasteful but suffocatingly dull ...

While there's a certain staid feeling to the production, it does deliver a solid working-over to the era's gentry.

The film looks great. As for the human element, the mood is more apathetic than tragic, and star Audrey Tautou has to take much of the blame for the film's failure.

The magnificent nature that surrounds Therese becomes her prison. It's an interesting paradox, but not necessarily an especially satisfying experience.

Mr. Miller's stolid approach - with its waxwork figures, postcard beauty, insistent tastefulness and glaze of politesse - feels far too comfortably of this world to mount a critique of it.

While not a nail-biter, the flowery dialogue (many elegant letters are read in voice-over), juicy twists and moral ambiguity make this a period piece worth slowing down for.

Miller's film is a work of emotional reserve, eschewing psychological explanation in favor of unadorned observation - of human behavior as well as nature and the still lifes of the domestic world.

[A] static, emotionless saga, which is defined less by zealous feeling than by a dull, decorous air of respectability.

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

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.

A tad on the stiff side.
