    Franju presents a slice of hyperrealism in an era of Neorealism and some very scarce remnants of experimental cinema and poetry. This is cinematic dissonance at its fullest expression: Franju employs Jean Painlevés complimentary commentary to address the contrasts between architectonic beauty and urban simplicity with despair, death and gore/5(K).

T he austere poetry of Georges Franju's cinema is at its most hauntingly expressive in this evocative adaptation of François Mauriac's famous novel, Thérèse common with his earlier bleak realist drama La Tête contre les murs () and macabre fantasy Les Yeux sans visage (), Franju's fourth feature derives most of its intense lyrical power from its stark visuals 5/5.

In Kate Ince’s book Georges Franju, she writes, “The plot of Les yeux sans visage, like a number of horror and science-fiction films before and since, is entirely woven around the idea that to be faceless is to be without a social identity, unviewable and unacceptable to the world.

Yet Thérèse Desqueyroux succeeds in being both an exceptionally faithful version of François Mauriac's novel and at the same time fully consistent with Franju's own attitudes and beliefs.
