Adapted from Gustave Flaubert’s classic tale via Posy Simmonds’ popular graphic novel, this sexy, lighthearted take on everyone’s favorite housewife gone astray stars a delectable Gemma Arterton (Byzantium, SIFF 2013) and a hilariously hapless Fabrice Luchini (Intimate Strangers). When retired Paris publisher Martin Joubert moves back to his Normandy village to take over the family bakery with spouse and son in tow, he is surprised to discover the plot of Flaubert’s famous novel “Madame Bovary” unfolding in the present day, as British expat Charlie Bovery (Jason Flemyng, Layer Cake) and his gorgeous young wife, Gemma, move in next door. Captivated, Joubert starts snooping on his new neighbor, eventually striking up a flirty friendship only to watch helplessly as Gemma falls for Herve (Niels Schneider, Heartbeats), the dashing son of the local lord. (Further eye candy is provided by the luscious, sundrenched French countryside.) Written and directed by SIFF favorite Anne Fontaine (Coco Before Chanel), Gemma Bovery is a pretty, witty homage to a timeless masterpiece.
