Director: Claude Miller
Run Time: 110 Minutes
Synopsis: The year is 1926. In the Landes region, free-spirited Thérèse Larroque, the daughter of a wealthy pinery owner and radical-socialist politician, marries Bernard Desqueyroux, another pinery owner. Although she does it half-heartedly, she thinks that marriage may help her to “sort out all the ideas in her mind”. But her disappointment is great. Her wedding night is all but fascinating and when she becomes pregnant she realizes the baby matters more to Bernard than herself. While Thérèse stifles in her husband’s beautiful residence among stiff in-laws who do not think high of her, ideas keep on roaming her mind.
