Audience Reviews for Therese Raquin


I was a little disappointed with Alan getting such a small part, but otherwise this is a pretty good story. Although the lovers could have avoided all these problems by just running away together, this makes for an interesting story too. It gets really dramatic in the ending, that was the best part.

Super Reviewer

The movie was a little strange but not without benefits. I liked it somewhat, but the only real reason I would watch it again is to see Alan Rickman on screen again. You just cant go wrong with Rickman.
