Untamable?
14 July 2005 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

This is the fourth film in the Angelique saga.Both this one and the fifth one("Angélique et le sultan" ) are actually one long flick divided into two parts.Both are Anne and Serge Golon's "Indomptable Angélique" transferred to the screen.

The first films of the series roughly followed the plots of the novels.But ,from "Angélique et le roy" onwards,they started to wander from them dramatically.For example ,"Angelique et le roy" consisted of the last part of the three which the novel featured.And Peyrac did appear in it whereas he is absent from the novel.

"Indomptable Angelique" :Angelique goes in search of her husband Joffrey de Peyrac who did not die on the stake .Golon's novel was oversimplified :numerous characters who appear in it have been ruled out:Desgrez,the king's policeman,Nicolas Calembredaine(galley slave in the novel)....The part of the old Savary is more important in the novel.Moreover ,Peyrac has become a masked pirate ,Le Rescator .In the movie,Had Robert Hossein been masked ,the audience would have giggled.Unfortunately a lot of Golon's magic is gone.

From the novel,the scenarists kept the most "daring" scenes:Angelique handed over to D'Escrainville's men down in the hold,then to ferocious cats ,then sold in a slaves market.At the time,the audience was very disappointed,even Angelique's fans ,because ,not only the movie was very short(barely 80 min)but it also abruptly ended.
