Synopsis:
A powerful adaptation of Guy de Maupassant's first novel, 'A Woman's Life' is a timeless story of anguished love set in the repressive world of early 19th century Normandy. Jeanne (Judith Chemla) is a young woman full of childish dreams and innocence when she returns home after finishing her schooling in a convent. Yet little by little her illusions are stripped away when she marries a local Viscount, Julien de Lamare (Swann Arlaud), who reveals himself to be a miserly and adulterous partner.

A Women's Life - A Woman's Life review by PK

Spoiler Alert
13/08/2018

This film in a way has been under rated. It is very long and cuts back and forwards, as the mind of the woman was doing going over how things were to remember moments that showed a little promise for the future.. Her life was very long and the slow pace portrayed the way she perceived it with a kind of nobility to just hang in there. . She always managed to believe that somewhere her happy ideal moment would come -surely if she just held on it must come - and it never did. Many peoples lives are like that when they cannot just run away from people they are committed to and do not want to see are treating them badly... Hang in there with her and it is worth seeing.
