a beautiful epic during the french revolution
21 June 2011 | by (France) – See all my reviews

This film is a beautiful epic which takes places during the times of the French Revolution.

As Alexandre Dumas and his colleagues as A. De Leuven, Auguste Maquet,… , Jean Paul Rappeneau based his story perfectly on the historical facts of this very troubled time. Through the adventures of Nicolas Philibert, the film illustrates and makes us easily understand the ins and outs, ideologies, claims and the affinities of the protagonists of this historical period.

A wind of freedom blows with the revolution and the adventurous Nicolas Philibert go quickly in the gaps of history to make the best for his incredible destiny irrevocably and irresistibly tied to her best friend from childhood, his wife Charlotte.

Great adventures in the tone of comedy, particularly accentuated by the strong and turbulent relationship between Nicolas and Charlotte which is light and adventurous and well embodied on the screen by the couple and Jean Paul Belmondo Marlene Jobert. The distribution of this film is noteworthy in view of the many talented and famous actors present: Charles Denner, Patrick Dewaere, Pierre Brasseur, George Beller, Sami Frey, Julien Guiomar, Paul Crauchet, Guibet Henry, Jacques Legras, Jean Pierre Marielle, Sim, Michel Auclair, Maurice Barrier, Laura Antonelli ... A French cast worthy of the greatest productions.

Indeed, it is a great production, as evidenced by a lot of action scenes; by, most of the time, authentic natural sets, by a lot of great period costumes for the large number of extras. The final battle is a perfect illustration of the means of production. This battle may also seem too widely developed on the screen relative to its own importance in the history of the characters, but it allows us to immerse well, to better accommodate with the clever, strong, short and very nice epilogue. She also serves as a spectacular finale to the film that may have some lengths and appears to be longer than it actually is. Lengths are very easily digested when the whole scenario took place on the screen.

Adventure, Comedy, technical talents and a special mention for the intelligent use of history make this film "les mariés de l'an deux" a very good film.
