Description

Buy your ticket at the box office! The film plays for 6 days. Lots of opportunities to see a good French movie.
Plays August 21 through August 27 at the Michigan.
Life begins to imitate art in uncanny ways when earthy British beauty Gemma (Gemma Arterton) and her furniture restorer husband Charles Bovery (Jason Flemyng, X-Men: First Class, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) move to the very same Norman village where the novel Madame Bovary was written. Local baker and Flaubert fan Martin Joubert (Fabrice Luchini) falls for the lovely and charming newcomer and sets out to be her mentor. It doesn’t take long before his wild imagination leads him to draw parallels between the literary and real life woman, as he insinuates himself into her life. She soon finds herself at a crossroads that seems to be fulfilling Joubert’s worst fears that her destiny is mirroring that of Flaubert’s doomed heroine. Director Anne Fontaine‘s clever adaptation of the graphic novel is at once a cheeky literary mash-up, a sensuous romance, a witty feminist commentary, and a heady celebration of French provincial life. ©Music Box Films

first one to register. Of course I will go. Because of French movie, because of Flaubert, because of Fabrice Luchini (first reason), because of Lyons-la-Forêt, village from Normandy where I lived three years.
