Set in 16th century France, the title character, Martin Guerre, marries Bertrande de Rois just before leaving to fight in the Hundred Years War. Assumed long-dead, he returns to his village, but he has changed (for the better) to such a degree that everyone begins to doubt that he is the real Martin Guerre.
James Travers (©2000) called this film one of the better period dramas of the 1980s, a compelling drama laden with suspense and intrigue. He praised the exceptional performances of the two stars, Gérard Depardieu and Nathalie Baye and the quality of the set and costume design.
An irreverent, uplifting comedy about friendship, trust and human possibility, The Intouchables has broken box office records in its native France and across Europe. Based on a true story of friendship between a handicap millionaire (Francois Cluzet) and his street smart ex-con caretaker (Omar Sy), The Intouchables depicts an unlikely camaraderie rooted in honesty and humor between two individuals who, on the surface, would seem to have nothing in common. -- © Weinstein, rottentomatoes.com
