Dupontel's film version of the ambitious Victor Hugo-like tome accomplishes precisely what modern cinema seems to be lacking when old-timers complain that "they don't make 'em like they used to."
Mixes high craft, surrealist humor and extremely dark themes - of trauma, death, corruption and manipulation - in ways that hold together rather well.
Every member of the cast is distinguished, with the director's portrayal of a sympathetic, almost Chaplin-esque everyman particularly effective.
As so many movies out there take no risks and don't dare to say anything, Dupontel's film deserves to be celebrated.
Full of rich historical details that anchor the sense of agony and resentment, but the plot is driven by huge coincidences... It doesn't really matter in a film so big on circus-like theatrics and grand flourishes.
...for sheer, gutsy, shoot-for-the-stars artistry and verve, there's nothing quite like it...
the story, with the flamboyant Edouard's creativity in full bloom, is an almost fantasy concoction of art, choreography, friendship and loyalty. And, love, too.
...it is notable that [director/star] Dupontel starred in Jeunet's "A Very Long Engagement," another French WWI set film about a soldier declared dead who is very much alive, the victim of a cruel and corrupt government.
A luxurious, successful reconstruction of the time, with staging that's balanced and intelligent. [Full Review in Spanish]
Albert Dupontel knows that a black comedy doesn't only have to be cynical and his film finds its soul in the masks that communicate the emotions of one of his characters. [Full Review in Spanish]
Lieutenant Pradelle receives a note informing him that the war is over, but he chooses to send his men to the battlefield. [Director] Albert Dupontel thus begins his most ambitious film... [Full review in Spanish]
The ambiance and effects greatly add to the creation of the surreal atmosphere of period theater. [Full Review in Spanish]
