Drama, Romance

The grim Emile Zola naturalist novel Therese Raquin has been vividly cinematized by director Marcel Carne. Simone Signoret plays the title character, the long-suffering housewife who dreams of a more romantic life-partner than the bourgeois Camille (Jacques Duby). Therese enjoys a torrid affair with burly truck-driver Laurent (Raf Vallone), only to realize the true emptiness of her aspirations. Ultimately, Therese brings about her own destruction, never truly learning to appreciate what she already has. In the U.S., Therese Raquin was released under the come-on cognomen The Adulteress.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
