To prepare her role in the French film adaptation of Posy Simmonds’ graphic novels “Gemma Bovery“, Gemma Arterton had a French immersion at Dialogue-France in Kerfiac, Brittany, France.

    Her testimonial:

“Ready to take on the French world”

“I have just completed my ten day course (super-intensive!).
I have enjoyed every minute of it.
Coming with only a handful of words and phrases, I definitely feel I am much better equipped now.
I feel I have broken through the first (and most challenging door) of learning French.
Armed with my two Phrases-clés CD’s, I am ready to take on the world!

“Totally refreshing approach”

“I found Bernard’s approach to teaching totally refreshing.
He works organically, allowing for an abundance of conversation (my prerogative) and focussing on giving me phrases that I can really utilise in my own life.
His patience is astounding (!!!) and never wains.
He obviously enjoys what he does and this really rubbed off on me.
We had lots of fun and laughs during the week.
I feel like this is just the beginning of our teaching relationship: Bernard has assured me that I can call him any time with questions, or even just for a chat (in French, of course).”

“Family warmth and generosity”

As for my stay at chez Henusse – well! I was absolutely charmed the moment I stepped into their gorgeous country cottage.
I felt at home immediately and was warmly welcomed by the beautiful Veronique and their talented son Theo.
The Immersion Course was made so memorable by the warmth and generosity I felt from this wonderful family.

“And the home-made food… Mon Dieu.”

Described as a reimagining of Gustave Flaubert’s ‘Madame Bovary,’ the film is the tragicomic story of the life and death of the titular character, an English expatriate living in Normandy.

Production is expected to kick off this Summer with French actor Fabrice Luchini (‘In The House,’ ‘The Women on the 6th Floor’) co-starring. Arterton will next be seen starring alongside Saoirse Ronan in Neil Jordan’s ‘Byzantium’ when it opens in Irish cinemas in May.

It would seem that Gemma Arterton has a thing for the works of author Posy Simmonds. The actress sashayed across the screen in Stephen Frears’ adaptation of the writer’s “Tamara Drewe” a couple of years back, and now it looks like she’s set to lead another one of Simmonds’ books as it heads to the movies.

French actor Fabrice Luchini revealed to Allocine that he’ll be starring with Arterton in “Gemma Bovery,” which Anne Fontaine (“Two Mothers,” “Coco Before Chanel“) confirmed she will direct. A reimagining of Gustave Flaubert’s “Madame Bovary” (duh), the story is told in flashback, detailing the tragicomic last few months in the life of the titular character, an English expatriate living in Normandy. The setting is contemporary and nods to Flaubert’s novel overt, so perhaps it will be a bit of fun for those looking to shake up the literary canon.

Production is set to get underway this summer, which means you can probably catch up with both the original book and then the graphic novel before this arrives.
