Auszeichnungen & Festivals

Venice Film Festival

1962 | 3 Gewinne unter anderem: Best Actor (New Cinema Award)


Riva’s Thérèse communes with the tree and feels both connected to it and apart, both bolstered by it and saddened, lifted aloft and then set back down. So near and yet so far. Riva reaches a height and a low here by refusing to settle or define anything for us. And her performance in “Thérèse Desqueyroux” is hard to write about because these kinds of emotions are so in flux and so dialectical.

The filming is pitilessly lucid, with Wyler severities for interiors filled with heavy furniture and Melville’s swift tracks and fades (Léon Morin, Priest). Franju adapts the text with meticulous fidelity, and yet finds a hundred Franju images: A deaf old crone ringing a bell, Scob cradling the bird she just shot down, a priest frozen mid-sermon, an off-screen death that halts a suicide.

The kind of novel that years ago both smirking producers and sniveling aesthetes would agree could not be made into a movie. Not only is there not enough plot but there is hardly any adequate motivation. The heroine does manage to forget her boredom long enough to poison her husband—but why? He recovers, but does not press charges. Why?
