HEDONIST's rating of the film Thérèse Desqueyroux

Began well but grew tedious towards the end. Stylistically beautiful, aesthetically pleasing, but as others have mentioned, the narrative doesn't seem to translate well into the cinematic medium. Tautou does indeed seem out of her element and despite her best efforts, her performance leaves much to be desired.
