MAL DE PIERRES/FROM THE LAND OF THE MOON (15) 2016 FRANCE GARCIA, NICOLE £18.99
Romance set in 1950s France and based on the Milena Agus novel. Free-spirited Gabrielle has to choose between her dependable Spanish farmer husband or recovering war veteran André.
Gabrielle find the constraints by the conventional 1950s society suffocating and as the Hollywoodreporter puts it – Gabrielle’s painful kidney stones, are an apt metaphor for her tormented love life. And when Gabrielle is sent to a Swiss clinic to treat the kidney stones,
she resists at first. (“Who says I want to be cured?”) But it’s always better than the lobotomy a French doctor suggests as an alternative’
