This film was a big reason why Gerard Depardieu was known in Europe as such a great actor. It was somewhat unfortunate that he tried too hard to make it in American films. Nonethless, The Return of Martin Guerre is one of those films that illustrates the mannerisms of fuedalist Europe, examining the powerless of women and the healthy prvalence of "black magic" and what not. What begins as something of a character study turns into an indictment of an era, showing just backward European thought used to be. Well thought out and evenly paced, this is certainly one to watch.
