Storyline

Mlle de Maupin escapes from her uncle's castle, invaded by Hungarian troops, under the guise of a clergyman named Theodore. An army recruiter forces Theodore to enlist in the King's army, and not even the religious robe is an insurance against it. Theodore is assigned to be aide-de-camp to Alcibiade, a man as virile in combat, as he seems troubled for the figure of his aid... D'Albert, an aristocrat, will expose Theodore's true sex, and after a number of confusing, comedy situations, Alcibiade will appease his troubled feelings. Written by Artemis-9

This is one of the most overlooked Bolognini movies.Based on a Theophile Gautier novel,it is more French than Italian:it looks like some of Jacqueline Audry's feminist movies of the precedent decade (particularly " Le Chevalier d'Eon " 1960).Besides, the two leads are French .

Magdeleine de Maupin is bored to death in her uncle's castle.The lord wants her to take refuge in a convent .She travels, dressed up as a priest for the country is not safe and ,mistaken for a man,she winds up as a recruit in captain Alcibiade's troops.The officer is sexually attracted by his new soldier ...Robert Hossein is well cast as the captain;at the same time,he was also playing Joffrey De Peyrac,Angélique's husband in the famous saga.
