Original English: Madame Bovary. 1856

The wife of a dull country doctor, trapped in a soul-smothering bourgeois village, Emma Bovary seeks passion and fulfillment in scandalous liasons. For a time she is happy; she feels she is living the glamorous life she's always longed for.
But when reality intrudes -when adultery becomes as bleak and tedious as her marriage- Emma is shattered.
