Gabrielle - Trailer

Posted on: June 1, 2006 | Views: 161 | Comment

Gabrielle is Patrice Chereau's stunning adaptation of the short story "The Return" by Joseph Conrad. Recreating turn-of-the-century France with superb attention to detail, Chereau casts an unrelenting gaze on the marital breakdown that overwhelms a middle-aged bourgeois couple, played with chilling precision by Isabelle Huppert and Pascal Greggory.

The opening shots mirror the first paragraphs of Conrad's story, as wealthy Parisian Monsieur Hervey (Greggory) descends from a train into the teeming bustle of the city. While on his way home, he reflects on the success of his life and the fortress of security he has built around himself. It is not long before his self-satisfaction is rudely shattered when he discovers a letter from his wife, Gabrielle (Huppert), waiting for him on his sideboard. The contents of the message will crumble that security and plunge him into newfound feelings of vulnerability, abandonment and betrayal. Husband and wife soon find themselves engaged in a parry-and-thrust of emotions that change mid-sentence and stretch their ability to function and live in the same house.
