Movie Info

In the mid-1800s in a northern French province, impressionable young Emma Roualt (Valentine Tessier) pines for the romantic life she reads about in novels. When kind doctor Charles Bovary (Pierre Renoir) tends to her father's broken leg, he is attracted to Emma and eventually courts and marries her. Desirous of glory and wealth, Emma pushes the decent but limited Charles to extend himself -- and when he meets with disaster, Emma begins a series of dangerous affairs to quell her dismay.

  • Turned out by a capable French director, with an excellent cast at his command, the screen version of the tragic life of the middle-class small-town girl... makes the most of a subject hardly likely to stir the pulses of a modern audience.

  • Butchered by its original distributor (who cut it by an hour), surviving in a merely adequate print, this is nevertheless superb early Renoir.

  • Not the best Renoir, but Renoir nonetheless -- and so, very well worth seeing.
