‘Madame Bovary’

madame_bovary_xlgStilted and stagey with no natural flow of rhythm or narrative realism. Emma Bovary may well have been in a stultifying marriage but it did not mean we had to sit through a stultifying film.

In spite of a powerful cast, including Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland, The Kids Are Alright), Paul Giametti (Sideways, Cinderella Man) and Rhys Ifans (The Amazing Spiderman, Anonymous), Madame Bovary is a major disappointment.
