A tale of the American West....set in France!
5 May 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

In the 1910s, Europeans seemed fascinated with the American West. Not surprisingly, they made quite a few westerns. "Coeur-Ardent" is one of these movies--filmed in France with French actors all dressed as American Indians.

The film begins with Burning Heart and Sunbeam (Berthe Dagmar--the director's wife) falling in love and deciding to marry. However, Burning Heart is poor and her father won't allow a man without a herd to marry his daughter. So, Burning Heart goes out and steals a neighboring tribe's cattle--nearly touching off a war. The fahter convinces Burning Heart to return them, but the tribe doesn't care--they are going to kill Burning Heart for his stupidity! How all this ends seemed pretty strange to me, but I won't give away the finale--you'll have to see it for yourself. And, if you do want see this Jean Durand film, you'll find it in "Gaumont Treasures Volume Two".

So is this one worth your time? Well, perhaps. The story is a bit silly but Durand and the actors manage to make it look pretty good--even though none of them are actual Native Americans. Worth seeing if you are a huge silent buff. Otherwise, probably not.
