  1. Some people are like empty buckets that can never be filled no matter what they get it’s never enough or it’s not the right thing.. they need to find a spiritual connection..only God can complete you.

  2. HONESTLY, she is more wrong but there is a degree of guilt on Charles. UNKNOWN COUPLE MUST CONVERSE TO KNOW THE OTHER .DONT BE TOO SELF ABSORBED, BOTH OF THEM .THEY HAD TO MEED IN THE MIDDLE. NEITHER PART WENT TOWARD THE OTHER.BUT TRULY SHE WAS VERY DUMB AND STUPID, AND THE HUSBAND IS BINDED IN HIS OLD WAYS NEVER REALISE WHICH TYPE OF PERSON IS WITH HIM AT LEAST ACCOMMODATE EACH OTHER .TRULY SHE WAS VERY TRAPPED IN HER OWN FANTASY. WHY DID SHE NOT SAY TO CHARLES IT IS NOT WORKING SHE WANTS TO LEAVE.POOR DOCTOR YET HE WAS SO KIND AND CLUELESS. THEY ARE BOTH AT FAULT BUT MORE THE WIFE.OF COURSE THEY USE HER WITH THE SIMPLICITY OF HER HUSBAND.

  3. Poor woman, the only chance she saw of gaining happiness was through men who she thought could provide – not just material, but intellectual and creativety, as well – perhaps, in that day and time that’s all she had at her disposal. So sad.

  4. So sad that there are many church’s just like that Catholic Church in this film. Turn away a sinner as if Jesus is not there, most likely because He isn’t, He’s everywhere that He is wanted, He’s is our hearts.

  5. Madame Bovary and Anna Karenina both were written and published around the same time–the Realism of bored housewives unable to live without fantasy and adventure. In realism we see tragic women trapped inside their dreams, but only after a time do these dreams manifest themselves. Neither woman started this way, but rather were encouraged and persuaded by manipulative men.

  6. Her nativity was taken advantage by men, she thought she could get love through sex and she caught on to the snake oil salesman too late. Her husband was a decent man but he didnt desire her the way she needed. I certainly dont think it was entirely her fault, men used her like so many of them are good at!!

  7. At the very beginning when she baked for him but he didn’t eat what she baked… and told the story about the patients wife who made him a mushroom omelette. Like, what????

    Did that make anyone else mad? I had a trigger of my ex and him invalidating me and triangulating me with other women.

    Ughhhhh

  8. I have seen many broken marriages where husband is working while his wife is without work, spending his money. Staying home and doing nothing doesn't do any good neither for a man nor a woman. Alright, her husband obviously wasn't the romantic type of man but he was good to her and with a little patience on her part she could have changed him. Instead, she choose instant gratification.

  9. It took me a while at first to get on this movie's wavelength but then I really got sucked in. The book is a total masterpiece – this film takes it in a different direction at times but it's extremely beautiful, sad and haunting. Mia Wasikowska is a brilliant actress – she has an uncanny presence – she can play naive and corrupt at the same time. I especially loved her scenes with Rhys Ifans who played the sleazy, sadistic merchant. The aesthetics of this film is off the chart.
