FRA | 1991 | dir. Claude Chabrol, with Isabelle Huppert, Jean-François Balmer, Christophe Malavoy

In 19th century France, Emma Bovary, a farmer’s daughter brought up in an elegant convent, marries a dull country doctor. Full of romantic aspirations and dreams of luxury, she soon throws herself into love affairs to escape boredom. Claude Chabrol’s adaptation of Gustave Flaubert’s novel offered Isabelle Huppert one of her most powerful roles.
