Cast and credits
In the pine-forested Landes region in southwest France, young Thrse (Tautou) has married wealthy but arrogant Bernard Desqueyroux (Gilles Lellouche) and is now part of the oppressively traditionalist Desqueyroux family. Although able to live in the lap of luxury, Thrse soon realizes that her role is to be forever subservient to Bernard. When her best friend Anna (Anas Demoustier) falls madly in love with a handsome young Portuguese man, Thrse is tasked to persuade Anna to forego her planned nuptials. But as she witnesses first-hand Anna's passionate determination to keep her lover by her side, Thrse finds her own desire growing and soon sets out to free herself from the provincial conventions that threaten to keep her forever repressed."
