Madame Bovary

Madame Bovary

Madame Bovary

Premiere on April 2, 2011 in Von Krahl.

Gustave Flaubert’s Madame Bovary has been called a perfect novel.

The novel’s heroine Emma Bovary has inspired the term bovarism, which denotes the state of mind of people who want to “see themselves as other than they are”. Almost everyone’s psychological makeup contains a bit of bovarism. “Every notary bears within him the debris of a poet”…

Emma is a pure representation of bovarism. She might find real, albeit banal happiness, if she devoted herself to her daughter and made some effort to educate the husband, whose love for her renders him quite malleable. And since Emma loves poetry, she might discover the poetry in nature and village life and sturdy peasant love.

But she refuses to see what’s around her. Instead of living the life she’s been given, she dreams of one that is completely different. That is her vice. As it was Flaubert’s.
And it is your vice too, hypocritical spectator…

A romantic woman, who cheats on her mediocre husband, ruins him and finally takes her life – it might seem trivial, but great tragedies can only blossom from the soil of banality…

Based on André Maurois’s “De La Bruyere a Proust” 1964.
