Storyline

Rural France, the 1890s. Always in motion, Augustin wanders three times. First, as a youth, while a boarder near Bourges, he's lost in the woods and finds a chateau where an engagement party's in progress: there he falls eternally in love with Yvonne and she with him. Back at school, he hears she is in Paris, so he follows in a vain search and meets a woman, jilted by her lover. In the countryside a few year's later, Augustin's friend François finds Yvonne and brings Augustin to her. They marry, but the next day, Augustin leaves to fulfill a youthful promise he made to Yvonne's brother. François comforts the pregnant Yvonne as they await Augustin's return.

Magic, with the sense of imminent revelation
12 April 2001 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

I feel very lucky to have seen this film on one of the few times it was ever shown in Seattle! It carries brilliantly the feeling of mystery and magic, of mystical revelations just beyond the horizon, of perfect happiness just out of reach... I was inspired by the film to seek out the novel, and then a biography of the author, and was not at all surprised to learn that this was the book whose spirit John Fowles was attempting to emulate when he wrote _The Magus_. It is a beautiful depiction of that which one doesn't quite comprehend, the adolescent world of Truth, Beauty, Honor and Love, the sense of immortality imbued with capital-letter qualities and the glory of discovery.

Anyone who has the opportunity to see this remarkable film should do so, and the novel is well worth reading as well.
