A Woman's Life

|The film will tell the story of Jeanne du Perthuis des Vauds' life between the ages of 18 and 45 in the early 19th century: it is the story of a hypersensitive woman, overly sheltered and in search of the absolute, who is unable to face up to the harsh reality of the world, a story of unconquerable mourning for the lost paradise of childhood.
