Yves Angelo directs Gérard Depardieu, Fanny Ardant and Fabrice Luchini in this period drama about a French officer thought dead who returns to claim his wife and fortune at the most inopportune juncture for the lady in question.
A forgotten yet gripping drama, which pleasingly never becomes predictable, furnished with strong performances from all its leads. The costumes and locations are convincing yet elegant. It even features polar bears. Well worth a revival.
