Fans of the exquisite Edwige Fenech should be happy with the “The Sins of Madame Bovary” released uncut for the first time on DVD from the fine folks at One 7 Movies.  This German/Italian co-production from 1969 stars Edwige Fenech as Madame Emma Bovary, an unhappy housewife married to a broke philanthropist doctor, Charles Bovary.

One evening the Bovary’s attend a shindig by the Duke of Artois.  Once there, Charles spends the evening secluded from Emma as he accompanies the Duke whilst he gambles, acting as the Duke’s good luck charm.  By her lonesome, Emma catches the gaze of a man.  The two share a dance with one another and swap a kiss, unbeknownst to Dr. Bovary.

Emma finds herself dreaming of a new life with the man she met at the Duke’s, away from her frugal existence with the doctor.  Her dreams come to an abrupt halt however when she gets word that the man of her dreams is killed.  Heartbroken for some time, she finally decides to devote herself completely to her husband.  Dr. Bovary gets a new, higher paying job in another town and after a year the two have a baby. 

With her new life and lifestyle brings new complications.  Madame Bovary is the lust of any man that comes in contact with her.  She is tempted by multiple suitors and succumbs to several.  She involves herself in several affairs, even going so far as to becoming indebted to a slime-ball man named Andolphe, who owns a high-end dress shop.  Providing Emma with fancy gowns, she runs up a tab which leaves her unable to pay.  Knowing her inability to pay monetarily, Andolphe puts on the pressure.  He forces her to make a sleazy decision of giving up the goods to him as payment; otherwise she will face losing her home and marriage.

Adapted from Gustave Flaubert’s romantic novel, “The Sins of Madame Bovary” is basically a film for Edwige Fenech fans only.  Fans of Ms. Fenech are in for a few nubile delights as she bares her breasts on numerous occasions throughout the film, and is very familiar with see-through nightgowns.  If you’re expecting some sleaze in the vein of a Fenech film like “The Seducers”, then you should look elsewhere.  Otherwise, you can anticipate another exposé of Fenech’s ageless radiance.

One 7 Movies releases “The Sins of Madame Bovary” on DVD with a 2.35:1 aspect ratio.  This presentation looks excellent and the pastel color scheme really shines.  The audio is presented Dolby Digital Italian 2.0 mono which is fine for a film from 1969.  There are English subtitles to go with the Italian track.  There are a couple instances of broken English due to inconsistencies with the English translation.  There is also a strange glitch when it comes to one of the character’s names.  Every time said character is mentioned via the subtitles his name appears “L√©on.”  These minor gripes aside, the subtitles are more than sufficient.  The only extras to be found are a “Photo Gallery” with screenshots and cover art from the film’s various releases.
