Description
 
This is a region-free DVD-R without case or artwork.

In French with English subtitles.

Soon after the death of his first wife (whose dowry was inadequate), Charles Bovary, a country doctor in Normandy, marries Emma Rouault, who is well-endowed in every sense. In her new home, Emma finds conflict with her mother-in-law, a husband uninterested in the social whirl, and general discontentment; thereby proving an easy conquest for philanderer Rodolphe. Other lovers follow. Does tragedy await?

3 of 5 Madame Bovary September 2, 2015
Reviewer: Bruce Beresford from Los Angeles, CA United States  
An early sound film and made in long takes invariably well sustained by Renoir. The actress playing Madame Bovary is a little homely for the role but overall this is a strong adaptation of an often-filmed novel.

4 of 5 Madame Bovary July 2, 2013
Reviewer: Robert Regan from Brewster, NY United States  
Renoir has reached his stride with this one.  Lucky Flaubert!  Three excellent movies based on his greatest book.  In some scenes Madame Tessier strongly resembles Isabelle Huppert who played the part in Chabrol's version.  Good transfer.
