Gemma Bovery

Critics Consensus

Gemma Bovery's bursts of charm -- among them Gemma Arterton's winsome performance in the title role -- are often enough to compensate for its lack of focus.

Audience Reviews for Gemma Bovery

  • Apr 27, 2016
    It's flaky and lacking in depth, but it still works

    Gemma Bovery(Gemma Arterton) and her husband Charlie(Jason Flemyng) have just moved to Normandy. It does not take Martin(Fabrice Luchini) the local baker, long to spot the similarity between Gemma's name and a certain French literary heroine, especially with its author having once lived in the area. One could make a case in "Gemma Bovery" that Martin is so obsessed with the novel of "Emma Bovary" that he is actually rewriting Gemma's life to fit his literary expectations. Which is a promising start for a movie, especially considering its good cast and neat locations. Except that director Anne Fontaine's usual indifferent style simply manages to suck most of the energy out of the room, even with the movie's twist filled ending.
