Married at a very early age to her cousin, Thérèse Raquin (Simone Signoret Room at the Top, Casque D’Or) leads an uneventful and joyless existence void of romance with her selfish husband (Jacques Duby) and authoritarian aunt. The arrival of the handsome Italian Laurent (Raf Vallone The Italian Job, The Godfather: Part III), to whom Camille has taken a liking, turns her life upside down. Straight away sparks of love and passion fly between Thérèse and Laurent, however Camille refuses to agree to a divorce and plans to take Thérèse to Paris, away from temptation. En route Camille is pushed off the train after a violent dispute with Laurent. The inquiry draws the conclusion of accidental death. However, a young sailor who witnessed the entire scene starts blackmailing Laurent… Thérèse Raquin is an adaptation of Emile Zola’s novel by critically acclaimed director Marcel Carné (Le Jour se Lève, Le Quai des Brumes). The film won a Silver Lion at the 1953 Venice Film Festival.
