A Woman's Life

A Woman's Life

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.
