It is always a tad unfair to judge movies in a dubbed version especially ,as is the case here,when the dubbing is perfunctory and careless.Actors voices are among the key elements of their personality and replacing them with an anonymous voiceover artist is tantamount to a form of castration.,not to mention the loss of credibility arising from poor lip synchronization.
The movie needs all the help it can get anyway being a pretty feeble affair.The Black Tulip is a Zorro like figure,with a penchant for black garb and mask who sides with the peasantry in the French Revolution by holding up aristocrats and disbursing the proceeds to the downtrodden-a reverse Scarlet Pimpernel,whose sentiments,rightly ,were pro establishment.When scarred on his face by the Police Lieutenant General he substitutes his identical twin,an idealist,who takes to the role with some relish
Cue romantic entanglements,some woeful sword fights and a plethora of bad dubbing until we get to the finale where heroism and self sacrifice rule the day Delon is dull and lacks the balletic grace that marks out the best screen swordsmen
Minor in every way
