Emma Bovary is bored by her country doctor husband and gives in to the affections of several rich suitors as well as the temptation of living beyond her husband’s means.
This version of the second greatest novel ever written (according to a 2007 poll), Gustave Flaubert’s Madame Bovary focuses on the adulterous affairs of the title character and more than any other version to date, on her intoxicating beauty. This is no wonder when you realize Emma Bovary is played by the stunning Edwige Fenech at the start of her long and illustrious career.
Having primarily appeared in sex romps set in the same time frame as Madame Bovary (circa 1850), Edwige Fenech is proves she is capable of carrying a meaty leading role in a costume drama here. Director Hans Schott-Schönbinger also knows how to make the most of this gorgeous woman in front of his camera in nearly every scene and cinematographer Klaus von Rautenfeld photographs the entire film in stunning widescreen format. Of course there is a lot of titillation on show, making this Bovary a strange combination of a chick friendly costume drama with some nudity thrown in for the boyfriends.
