Fanfan la Tulipe

Overview

Pauline Kael once characterized the French adventure film Fanfan the Tulip as a "Louis XV western."

Overview

Pauline Kael once characterized the French adventure film Fanfan the Tulip as a "Louis XV western." This is a pretty broad interpretation, though it is true that the film never stops moving--an excellent method of sustaining audience attention and plugging up the plot holes. Gerard Philipe plays Fanfan, a handsome, athletic and self-impressed young peasant soldier. Fanfan is as adept in the boudoir as on the battlefield; it has been prophesied that he will wed the king's daughter, thus he wants to get as much practice as possible.

Fanfan the Tulip is available in several shorter versions, one of which has been redubbed Soldier in Love.
