Bovary 2.0

× × >

Sophie Barthes has chosen't to start by the part II of the book. The movie is a different story from the book but they are many similar points. The vision of the characters is very different of what we can read in the book. The audience can be lost if the story is too slow. But that is the choice of the director and it's an interesting point of view. The characters' s point of view is shown by the shoulder camera.

The plot:

A suprising movie

* * *

The plot is impredictable because of all the changes of the plot: the director Sophie Barthes paused our attention more on Emma and the living conditions of women at that time. The fact she's not pregnant, the marquis who embodies three characters at the same time, the ball and the festivities of Yonville are skipped. The director would to give a new youth to the book. Her vision doesn't fellow reader of Madame Bovary.

Poor Bovary


The movie stars with the end of the story. It creates a surprise effect for the spectator. The lighting is very dark even outside, there isn't sun. it shows Emma's depression. The story didn't flow smoothly by some light effects, the atmosphere is true to the 19th century. It took us back in the 19th century.

A blue movie


The clothing choices were very interesting and they stayed true to the book. In Flaubert's book, Emma always wears blue, at every main event in the book, the color blue appears. In the movie, Emma wears a lot of blue dresses which reminds us of Emma in the book. Character clothes respects the style of the XIXth century. The clothes play an important role because Mr Lheureux, a merchant sells many dresses to Emma which contributes to her loss, her death. The clothes also reflect the social class of every character wether they are rich or poor.

A perfect representation of Emma's boredom

The setting influences the representation of Emma's feelings her lonelyness, her boredom, her coldness, the fact she's lost in the forest, which looks like a scary place.

It adds a gloomy mood to the movie.

We were expecting that kind of landscapes, similar to the book. The place where it was filmed was well-chosen, with fields which contributes to the beauty of the setting.
