In the French region of Landes, near Bordeaux, marriages are arranged to merge land and unite neighbouring families. Thus, young Thérèse Larroque becomes Mrs Desqueyroux. But her avant-garde ideas clash with local conventions. In order to break free from the fate imposed upon her and live a full life, she will resort to tragically extreme measures...
Claude Miller's final film is anchored by a performance of subtlety and depth Audrey Tautou as the titular character and ably matched by Gilles Lellouche as her husband.
