Imbecilistic revisionism
3 November 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This, like too many French scripts aimed at modernizing the seventeenth century's literary production in Paris, is utterly out of context and disregards all facts. Here La Fontaine is presented as an important political commentator feared by the power that be. It is furthermore suggested that his "writing career" depended on Fouquet's support. Many writer of the time are evoked to no purpose other than to promote the "Hero". No mention is made of Aesop. No mention is made of La Fontaine's friendly patrons. We are led to believe that the guy was a Trotskist before his time. The acting is in accordance with the pretensions of the writing.
