Fun to watch & nothing more
Swordplay in the classic style. Great fun. Watched it 4 times then my old vhs tape gave up the ghost and snapped. Daniel Auteuil is a great actor.....so versatile.....'Harry' in 'The Eighth Day' and 'Ugolin' in 'Jean de Florette'. In 'Le Bossu' he ends up holding the baby.....and there's a hunchback in it (again).
Very good film if you like The Three Musketeer type movie.....french style.
A plot worthy of Dumas but, alas, the execution is not there.
Rousing, old-fashioned swashbuckler.
Brilliant story, cast and performance! Highly recommended :-)
outlandish but loads of fun. the kind of film i thought they didn't make anymore: swashbuckling in grand style!
As someone who doesn't make enough effort to track down the movies he'd really like to see, and who rarely troubles to watch anything a second time, the fact that I've now seen <I>Le Bossu</I> three times - having actively hunted for it on two of those three occasions(!) - must mean that I'm rather fond of it. Yes, some of the plot developments take a little swallowing, the love story is kind of kinky and the film never quite recovers from the loss of Vincent Perez, but it's romantic to a fault, the period recreation is exquisite, the performances are delightful and there's literally an exciting twist or turn every five or so minutes. What I admire most about <I>Le Bossu</I>, however, is that it's a textbook example of that seemingly effortless French lightness of touch which Hollywood invariably translates into indigestible stodge. Daniel Auteuil is wonderful here.
Really swashbuckly and cute and funny... except for the sort-of-incesty romance storyline. I could have done without that.
Hunchback! Albinoes! Treacherous (Italian) villains! Cute frenche underaged damsels! En Garde! It's the ultimate swashbuckling feulletton dream flick. Love it, or surrender!
