period: Fanfan la Tulipe

Fanfan la Tulipe

In this 2003 remake of the classic 1952 French film, Fanfan la Tulipe is a swashbuckling lover who is tricked into joining the army of King Louis XV by Adeline La Franchise, the daughter of a recruiting officer, who tells Fanfan that by doing so, he will eventually marry one of the king’s daughters.

As in the original the original Fanfan desires become confused, and Madame de Pompadour (Hélène de Fougerolles) has a small but important part in smoothing the path of true love.
