A great reconstitution
15 April 2006 | by the_French_DesertFoxSee all my reviews

A docu-fiction which aimed to show General's De Gaulle intimate life more than his well know acts of war. So, the most important parts of his history are not detailed. Be sure this is not a documentary. It's more than that.

Bernard Farcy, as he later told, tried not to imitate the general. It was a good idea. The result is so good that sometime, you don't even care if Farcy is not a perfect double of De Gaulle (his size help anyway). The older De Gaulle is, the better Farcy plays. The second roles are performed as well especially Churchill, Raynaud, Malraux & Yvonne De Gaulle. The mix between archives and video is quite well done. The best parts remains the famous words he said and his habits. A few mistakes were made but can be easily explained. In the few war scenes reconstitution, it could really have been better made but let's remind this was made for TV (OK OK, band of brothers too...)

More than a documentary, it's a life lesson.
