Gemma Bovery has me Dreaming of France

We saw the French trailer for Gemma Bovery back in September 2014. It looked fantastique and we had the English subtitles to help out those of us sans French. Now, finally, we have the US trailer for Gemma Bovery, a reimagining, if you will, of Flaubert's Madame Bovary. I'm pleased to see it's still a lush mix of French and English, and looks pretty darn delicious. The French countryside, the seductive sound of the French language, the French aptitude for seduction, all comes together in this fun, sexy hybrid based on the comic by Posy Simmonds, and directed by Anne Fontaine. Gemma Bovery opens here in the US on April 29th in limited release, so you'll have to check your local theaters for possible showtimes.

Check in with fellow francophiles at Dreaming of France, the weekly meme where bloggers share their love of France.


  1. Oh I'm so keen to see this. I read the book a few weeks ago, but even though the film was released months ago in Australia it hasn't come anywhere my part of small town Australia. I hope you get to see it soon. Interesting that they cut out the dinner table discussion about the Bovery name.

    I've got a bit about French films in my Dreaming of France post today too.

  2. I love that it incorporates the book and shows how it parallels those characters. And, I also love how easy it is to understand Gemma Bovery when she speaks French! Thanks, Sim, for another wonderful find. Hope I get to see it in Columbus. Here’s my Dreaming of France meme
