DOMBAIS & FILS (2007, Laurent Jaoui, A++++++++++++++)

DOMBAIS & FILS (2007, Laurent Jaoui, A++++++++++++++) is not a great mini-series, if you judge it artistically or aesthetically. But it is one of my most favorite mini-series of all time, because I worship Edith de Préville (Caroline Bourg), the female character in this mini-series who does not tolerate her tyrannical husband.

Favorite quote from Edith de Préville, saying to her husband: "Too bad for you, whatever my travails, yours will always be much worse. I will play no part in your house, neither tomorrow, nor on any anniversary. I will not be seen as a rebellious slave, bought and tamed by you."
