Madame Bovary

142 mins
7.4 / 10 (1644)


Bored with the tedious nature of provincial life in 19th-century France, the fierce Emma Bovary finds herself in calamitous debt and pursues scandalous sexual liaisons with absolute abandon. However, when her volatile lifestyle catches up to her, the lives of everyone around her are endangered.

MUBI's take

Starring Isabelle Huppert as Gustave Flaubert’s infamous heroine, Claude Chabrol’s Madame Bovary reinvents the period drama on an epic scale. The pictorial pleasures of the Oscar®-nominated costumes are filtered through Hitchcockian camera angles, revealing the unsettling ennui of provincial life.
