You get a sense not only of Philipe's professional training, which clearly honed his skills in choreography and movement, but also of his natural charms. That the actor performs so effortlessly, so casually, is the real magic here.

Starring the go-to couple of Gérard Philipe and Gina Lollobrigida, it features duels, chases and low-cut costumes, all in glorious black and white.

Enjoyable but undeniably creaky; what played as glorious period tomfoolery to European festival juries and discerning U S audiences in the early 1950s now just seems quaintly pleased with itself.

Christian-Jaque gets a bouquet for his effort, even though it's just this side of being complete.

Cahiers-savvy cinephiles will recognize Fanfan as the type of handsome prestige production that the French New Wave overthrew in the early '60s, but this example of the 'cinéma de qualité' is hardly a musty artifact.

[A] delightfully funny sendup of swashbuckler movies...

Even though the film moves at a snappy pace, its story still doesn't move fast enough.

Tiresomely tireless escapade.

...a perfectly jolly swashbuckler...if a bit dated.

Audience Reviews for Fanfan La Tulipe (Fan-Fan the Tulip)

Fanfan La Tulipe is a charming adventure romance comedy infused with enjoyable sword choreography featuring a mischievous Fanfan in search of love and destiny. Playful.
