Audience Reviews for Colonel Chabert


First review! Great adaptation of Balzac's famous novel with beautiful visuals and outstanding performances from Gérard Depardieu and Fabrice Luchini. Not much to say about it, specifically: acting, cinematography, story, writing - they're all very good, making for a rock-solid period piece which was nominated for six of France's highest prizes for cinema (the César awards).
