history and its precise traits
9 November 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

It is not different by many French historical films. Beautiful clothes, inspired locations, seductive photography, correct performances and dialogues, Jacques Perrin reminding the traits of his art, Pierre Boulanger giving a seductive and provocative Le Cinq - Mars. And, sure, tension, love story, decent reflection of historical events, drops of humor, familiar and loving fight scenes and nice end. A TV film reminding, maybe too much, a long tradition and the flavors of history of France in correct manner.
