In essence, another Fanfan la Tulipe. In fact, more than heroic, nice comedy. But a lovely social portrait. Because it reflects the vision of Gerard Philipe himself about near reality. Sure, in an idealistic and ironic manner. But precise. And useful. A great adventure film . And an admirable work.
