Madame Bovary

Critics Consensus

Over the years, Flaubert's Madame Bovary has proven an exceedingly difficult novel to film -- and this version adds another disappointing entry to the list.

Audience Reviews for Madame Bovary

  • Feb 28, 2016
    A poor adaptation of Gustave Flaubert's classic novel, Madame Bovary is monotonous and cliché. The story follows a young woman who marries a country doctor, but finding her new life unfulfilling, she starts to spend recklessly and seeks out new lovers. Mia Wasikowska gives a strong performance but the character is underdeveloped. The film never really delves into the why behind her infidelity and excessive spending, which makes her come off as a rather shallow character. And the dialog is quite dry, with no passion to it. However, the film looks beautiful; with elaborate costumes and set designs. Also, the score does a good job at setting the mood and tone. Yet despite its first class production values, Madame Bovary has no heart.
