Joe Hackman's rating of the film Thérèse Desqueyroux

Audrey Tautou takes on the challenging titular role, one which requires her to suppress emotions in lieu of expressing them, and she does so quite well. Miller's mise-en-scène is adept; the camera is always where it should be. What delighted me most about this film was the subtlety with which everything was portrayed, which some Americans might find frustrating. I, for one, appreciated the film. Bravo!
