I did not quite get it all.

I wanted to watch this historical french movie. A very tiny budget feature that interested me to see. But unfortunately, I failed in searching for a real purpose. Maybe there is not any...Very static and meaningless film, as far I can say about it. But maybe I am dumb. It takes place in France, in 1755, some time after the execution of the famous outlaw Mandrin. And his fellow friends, even those who did not know him closely, decide to ride all over the countryside to spread the songs of their late leader. Some OK action sequences, but that doesn't explain the meaning of all this. Not uninteresting, although, but I am upset to have perhaps missed something worth.
