A powerful adaptation of Guy de Maupassant’s first novel 'Une vie', A Woman’s Life is a timeless story of love, betrayal and anguish set in the repressive patriarchal world of early 19th century Normandy.

Jeanne (Judith Chemla) is a young woman full of childish dreams and innocence when she returns home after finishing her schooling in a convent. Yet little by little her illusions are stripped away when she marries a local Viscount, Julien de Lamare (Swann Arlaud), who reveals himself to be a miserly and adulterous partner.

This poignant period drama from French director Stéphane Brizé (The Measure of a Man) has impressed audiences and critics alike with its tragic tone and striking performances. The film competed at the 73rd Venice Film Festival, where it won the Fipresci Prize for Best Film in competition, and now comes to UK audiences in a Blu-ray special edition that includes a selection of fascinating extra features.
