Synopsis

Life begins to imitate art in uncanny ways when earthy British beauty Gemma and her furniture restorer husband Charlie Bovery move to the very same Norman village where the Gustave Flaubert's famous novel was written. Local baker and Flaubert fan Martin Joubert falls for the lovely and charming newcomer and sets out to be her mentor. It doesn't take long before his wild imagination leads him to draw parallels between the literary and real life woman, as he insinuates himself into her life. She soon finds herself at a crossroads that seems to be fulfilling Joubert's worst fears that her destiny is mirroring that of Flaubert's doomed heroine.
