A Woman's Life DVD

| DVD

A powerful adaptation of Guy de Maupassant's first novel 'Une vie', A Woman's Life is a timeless story of love, betrayal and anguish set in the repressive patriarchal 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. This poignant period drama from French... director Stéphane Brizé (The Measure of a Man) has impressed audiences and critics alike with its tragic tone and striking performances. The film competed at the 73rd Venice Film Festival, where it won the Fipresci Prize for Best Film in competition, and now comes to UK audiences in a Blu-ray special edition that includes a selection of fascinating extra features.

Judith Chemla and Jean-Pierre Darroussin star in this French drama co-written and directed by Stéphane Brizé. Based on Guy de Maupassant's novel, the film follows 19th century baroness Jeanne du Perthuis des Vauds (Chemla) as she returns to her parent's estate near the Normandy coast and agrees to marry Viscount Julien de Lamare (Swann Arlaud). However, soon after giving birth to the couple's first child, Jeanne is shocked to discover Julien has been having an affair with their maid Rosalie (Nina Meurisse). Trapped in an unhappy marriage, things get worse for Jeanne in the years to come as Julien's behaviour shows no sign of changing.
