Movie Info

Rene Clair's Grand Maneuver was originally titled Les Grandes Manoeuvres, which should surprise no one. Gerard Phillipe plays a dashing dragoons officer, vintage 1913, who wagers his friends that he can make the next woman who enters the room fall in love with him. In strides drop-dead gorgeous Michele Morgan, and the rest writes itself. Phillipe plans a slow seduction and a quick goodbye; Morgan, need we say, is no "goodbye girl." For all its lavish sets and meticulously detailed period

It lacks an edge and though elegantly filmed in grand costumes it lacks sophisticated wit and its over familiar plot is too predictable.

Audience Reviews for Les grandes manoeuvres (The Grand Maneuver)

Classy, refined romance in provincial town where everyone knows everyone else's secrets between playboy army lieutenant Gerard Philipe and scrupulous socialite milliner Michele Morgan. To his surprise he finds love for the first time, but obstacles to happiness include the pesky gossip grapevine and the fact that he began his courtship as a bet with his fellow soldiers. Impeccable script and great cast, including young doe-eyed Brigitte Bardot as a photographer's daughter dating Philipe's best friend, and the ending will surely tug at your heartstrings.
