Claude Chabrol’s “Madame Bovary” is a seemingly meticulous adaptation of Gustave Flaubert’s ever-astonishing novel that, on its publication in 1857, was unsuccessfully prosecuted by the French Government for “immorality.” In nineteenth-century France, the romantic daughter of a country squire, Emma Rouault, marries a dull country doctor, Charles Bovary.
