Madame Bovary

2 years, 5 months ago at May 19 19:40
There’s something about Gustav Flaubert’s towering literary achievement that seems nearly impossible to translate to cinematic language. Perhaps it’s the insular nature of the prose? The way that its critique is both ambiguous and acidic, especially towards its titular heroine, maybe more like anti-heroine, is something that’s difficult to capture under even the greatest translations.   ... read more

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Mia Wasikowska, I thought I might as well check it out. First of all, even though it is a huge classic of French literature, I have to confess that I still haven’t read this book yet but, to be honest, I hope it is actually better than this rather tedious movie.

“I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Mia Wasikowska, I thought I might as well check it out. First of all, even though it is a huge classic of French literature, I have to confess that I still haven’t read this book yet but, to be honest, I hope it is actually better than this rather tedious movie. The main issue was that Emma Bovary is, supposedly, supposed to be a complex and fascinating character but, in this adaptation, she was pretty much reduced to a spoiled bored and boring woman and, as result, I was never able to root for her. I mean, she basically spent the whole duration whining about her situation without doing much anything about it except spending way too much money and having some rather pathetic love affairs. Basically, he” read more

Madame Bovary

“There’s something about Gustav Flaubert’s towering literary achievement that seems nearly impossible to translate to cinematic language. Perhaps it’s the insular nature of the prose? The way that its critique is both ambiguous and acidic, especially towards its titular heroine, maybe more like anti-heroine, is something that’s difficult to capture under even the greatest translations.   This version of Madame Bovary is not one of the greatest translations. It’s not the worst, but it’s merely there existing. There’s no grand shock of Flaubert’s ending here, as the film opens with Emma Bovary’s death-rattle as she stumbles around the woods and eventually collapses. This Emma Bovary is envisioned as a woman placed in a stranglehold by the patriarchy and blown about by the” read more
