French director Claude Miller’s final ever film, Thérèse Desqueyroux (2012) is anchored by a performance of great subtlety and depth by Audrey Tautou (Amelie) as the titular character, whilst she’s also ably matched by Gilles Lellouche as her husband. To celebrate the DVD and Blu-ray release of Thérèse Desqueyroux this coming Monday (9 September), we’ve been given THREE DVD copies of Miller’s period drama to give away to our well-read supporters, courtesy of the team at world cinema specialists Artificial Eye. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at facebook.com/CineVueUK or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.
In the French region of Landes, not far from the city of Bordeaux, marriages are arranged to merge land and unite neighbouring families. Thus, young Thérèse Larroque (Tautou) becomes Mrs. Desqueyroux. However, her avant‐garde ideas quickly clash with local conventions. In order to break free from the fate imposed upon her and live a full life, she’s willing to resort to tragically extreme measures.
To be in with a chance of winning one of THREE copies of Thérèse Desqueyroux on DVD, just answer the following simple question:
Thérèse Desqueyroux is based upon the novel by which French writer?
a) Alexandre Dumas
b) Émile Zola
c) François Mauriac
