The Return of Martin Guerre (Le Retour de Martin Guerre) Reviews

November 10, 2019
Although the answer to the is-he-or-isn't-he question is never really in doubt, this is nonetheless a fascinating film.

It's so superbly acted and it's kind of about acting.

[A] sad, exquisite film.

A sobering account not only Medieval provincial life but the extremely limited role of women's agency.

The restoration is vivid, rendering the film even more striking than it was in 1982. The narrative still puts on on the edge of ones seat. Depardieu and Baye at their best.

It's fitting that there are so many good performances here since, in the subtext, The Return of Martin Guerre is a film about acting.

It's not about whether a man is guilty or innocent, but whether reality is worth holding onto.

Compelling romantic mystery drama, well acted by Gerard Depardieu and Natalie Baye; stay away from the American remake, Sommersby
