The new joys of divorce.
10 September 2006 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

Pleasant harmless adventures in costume during the French Revolution (L'an II is 1793).The first half is my favorite ,for it features Italian beauty Laura Antonelli whose photo romances I had read a few years before.There's also a very good score by Michel Legrand (who else?) and a splendid cinematography by Claude Renoir.The story is pleasant : a raider (Belmondo) comes to back from Canada to find that his wife (Marlene Jobert) is wooed by two nobles."Divorce" was a new word in the French vocabulary.Patrick Dewaere,who was about to become one of the most popular actors of the French seventies ,appears as a conscript.
