Cinema: “Eugénie Grandet”, adapted from Balzac, will be released in theaters on September 29

Wednesday September 29 will be released at the cinema “Eugénie Grandet”. The novelist Marc Dugain signs the adaptation of the famous novel by Honoré de Balzac, published in 1834.

In the 1830s, Eugénie Grandet dreamed of love and travel, when her father accumulated money and goods. On the big screen, Eugenie Grandet, by Balzac, becomes a pamphlet against patriarchy. “It’s a feminist work, because Balzac was a feminist, he had a very strong awareness of the condition of women in his time, which was terrifying.“, judges the novelist and director Marc Dugain.

Balzac’s writing is teeming with descriptions, long dialogues, and 19th century words. Adapting this novel required modernizing the language. “It is a language, and it is an era. Marc found this very subtle path between this period language and a modern language. His sentences are clear“, to analyse Joséphine Japy, actress. Next month, it will be the turn of the novel The Lost Illusions to be adapted to the cinema, by Xavier Giannoli.
