Gemma Bovery trailer with English subtitles will have you Dreaming of France


I shared the teaser trailer for Gemma Bovery back in August. Sadly for those of us who don't speak French, the trailer in that post had no subtitles. This morning I've got the trailer for the reimagining of Flaubert's Madame Bovary complete with English subtitles. Based on Posy Simmond's bilingual graphic novel, Gemma Bovery looks like a lot of fun and worlds away from the tres serious Madame Bovary redux starring Mia Wasikowska

Based on what we see in this trailer alone, I'm not surprised the movie screened to standing ovations at the Toronto International Film Festival where according to Variety the UK and American film rights were secured. 


Gemma Bovary stars Gemma Arterton as a young British woman who moves with her husband to a small town in Normandy where she meets a French baker played by Fabrice Luchini, a popular star in France. 

J'adore the conversation the baker has with his wife and son where he asks them to guess the couple's name, which of course, is Bovery.
"James Bond?" the teen hazards a sarcastic guess. "MacDonald's?"
Watch!

BIENVENUE Dreaming of France friends. 
Do you guys think this looks as yum as I do?

  2. Oh my gosh that looks fantastic! That dinner table scene is fantastic. I wonder if calva is calvados? Argh, but I can't find an Australian release date- or even a US one. I've never heard of Posy Simmonds before, but have just ordered the graphic novel online. Ooops.

    1. I hadn't heard of her either but clearly a fresh voice. Looks to me like Calva IS calavados as you suggest which I've not heard of either but looking it up and learning it's apple brandy, I'm thinking I might have to do some further research on the subject, haha!

    2. I've tried calvados- it's way too strong for me. I've just started reading Gemma Bovery, and was looking back at your post that introduced the film, and so the book to me. And I noticed that the second poster is German- Ein Sommer Mit Flaubert! My German isn't really up to much, but enough for that... I'm loving the book so far.

  3. So glad to know this movie is winning over the audience. I'm always in favor of a freckle-faced heroine.
