A first-class adaptation of the 1949 novel by Jean Giono with an excellent ensemble cast and magically pictured by Eric Gautier: Around 1880, the beautiful Thérèse settles with her lover Firmin in a peaceful village in the Provence region. The two make the acquaintance of Monsieur and Madame Numance, who are both as friendly as they are wealthy. Firmin senses an opportunity for easy money and takes advantage of Madame Numance's naivety to set up a shady business. But it is above all the multifaceted nature of the relationship between Madame and Thérèse that creates suspense. (Matthias Greuling)
