A gem!
13 December 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am very glad to hear that a restored version of this beautiful and moving film is finally available! Having read the book at the age of sixteen ( MANY years ago! ) I was very surprised that the hero's feelings of intensely conflicting emotions were so perfectly conveyed - I shouldn't have been surprised seeing as it was the great Gerard Philipe. All we can hope for now is that this version will be made available on DVD as the only version around at the moment is a dubbed one. Let us also hope that more French films made in the era before the so called "New Wave" will be released so that a new generation (and the odd old fogey)can enjoy some great film making!
