Good effort, but...
21 August 2000 | by (Cap-de-la-Madeleine, Canada) – See all my reviews

This bio movie shows us aging famous French writer Guy de Maupassant in the last years of his life, when he lose his mind. The 19th Century set is very good, but too much flash backs don't help the movie. I also think that Claude Brasseur is not the best actor for that kind of role. He is too much rude, too much 20th Century! Rest of the cast is good, with veterans Jean Carmet and Simone Signoret. Watch for the finale : we can clearly see that director Michel Drach have seen some Fellini's films before...
