Director: Claude Chabrol
Cast: Jean Yanne, Isabelle Huppert
Unfaithful wives don't come any more insubordinate than Flaubert's jaded Emma, and renditions of Emma don't come any more alluring than Huppert's. Drifting like a lost saint among the dreary trappings of rural Normandy, she becomes consumed by myths and trinkets of another kind of life. And another saint falls to earth.
