A precious insight into an extremely underrated musical show!
javvie from Cologne, Germany

This documentary gives a intriguing insight into the process of
writing, rehearsing and staging a musical. "Martin Guerre", written by
the composer team of Alain Boublil and Claude Michel Schoenberg (Les
Miserables, Miss Saigon), offers an absorbing story combined with very
haunting music. To get a glimpse of what the rehearsals for this
underrated musical show must have been like, and to have the composers,
the producer, and other people involved comment about the production,
is definitely a good reason for trying to get hold of the videotape.
The only sad thing about this "making of" is that it cannot capture ALL
of Martin Guerre within its 70 minutes length. Unfortunately, the
complete show has never been released on video or DVD. This fact makes
a look behind the scenes - as one gets it here - even more precious.
