Movie Info

In Nazi-occupied France, Marie (Isabelle Huppert), a mother of two, is struggling to support her family. Her debilitated husband, Paul (François Cluzet), can no longer work when he comes back from the war. Out of desperation, Marie decides to perform illicit abortions and charge large sums for her services. Before long she's making a considerable amount of money from her secret occupation -- which soon leads her to disregard the ailing Paul and turn her attentions to a lavish new lifestyle.

Audience Reviews for Story of Women (Une Affaire de Femmes)

  • Oct 24, 2012
    The Second World War continues to be a great source of film material and this is an important addition to that collection of film..albeit one that isn't overly compelling. A tiny conflict within a larger one.

    I admire Isabelle Huppert more and more as an actress with each film I see her in. Here she plays Marie Latour, one of the last women guillotined in France, for having performed illegal abortions. The subject is obviously a delicate one. Chabrol doesn't take sides though. The dark side of this woman is evident, she shows little or no concern for her clients and seemingly is only doing it to get as much money as possible out of it. But there is also a innocence to her, to do anything she can to provide the best for her children. Would make a great (though admittingly bleak) double feature with Vera Drake.
