Date/Time and Place of Event
Originally produced by Kino Lorber in 2016.
Adapted from the novel *Une vie* by Guy de Maupassant, A WOMAN'S LIFE is a tale of tormented love embedded in the restrictive social and moral codes of marriage and family in 19th century Normandy. Upon finishing her schooling in a convent, young aristocrat Jeanne marries local Viscount Julien de Lamare, who soon reveals himself to be a miserly and unfaithful husband. As she navigates his chronic infidelity, pressure from her family and community, and the alternating joys and burdens of motherhood, Jeanne’s rosy illusions about her privileged world are slowly stripped away. French filmmaker Stéphane Brizé shot the film in constricted 4:3 Academy ratio, creating a tightly composed work that perfectly translates de Maupassant’s portrayal of life’s indifferences. Nominated for Best Actress (Judith Chemla) and Best Costume Design at the **César Awards**. Winner of the FIPRESCI Award for Best Film in Competition and nominated for the Golden Lion for Best Film a the **Venice Film Festival**. *"Haunting and profound... There could never be too many movies like this one." - A.O. Scott, **The New York Times***
