Lagardère Reviews:

A retelling of Paul Feval's Le Bossu, with a number of changes. The intrigue is a tiny more complex in the uncut version, which allows a greater development of the friendship that develops between Lagardere and the Duc de Nevers. Instead of a gypsy circus, Lagardere hides with Aurore in Spain, taking occasional trips through Europe hunting down the surviving killers of the Duke, looking for the shadowed assassin whose hand was pierced by Lagardere's dagger after stabbing the Duke in the back. The only drawback I found was that the Duke's unique fencing move, the Botte de Nevers seemed a tiny overused in the movie.A very well done film with a several twists and turns. Nice performances by nearly all the actors (I found Yvon Backe's de Gonzague a tiny weak), with Clio Baran doing a nice job as an Aurore with the wit, wiliness and feistiness of her natural and adoptive fathers. The dialogue is very well written and rendered, but you'll need to know French to understand it.


Major Spoilers re plot .......I loved the Le Bossu films starring Jean Marais and soon Daniel Auteuil. The first is I think the greatest in keeping to Feval's story, not just the happenings but also a sense of reality - and how the characters would have been at the turn of the 17th/18th centuries in France - Lagardere already well-known in Paris in spite of his youth in the early part of the storyline as an ex-soldier, superior swordsman and charismatic gallant whose orphan past is mitigated by his natural dignity as the lost son of a murdered Comte, and some training befitting him for his eventual elevation to Comte de Nevers. Aurore a demure young lady behaving as one of the noble class would in those days. And the welcome inclusion of the book's long and delicious Spanish sequence. The soon ver (which I saw first) is modernised in style with a very feisty young heroine who herself learns to perform her father's popular Botte and uses it too to slay a noble intent on raping her, whilst Lagardere is in many methods the young character of the prequel written by Feval's son about Lagardere's childhood and early teens. The setting of the travelling circus's almost dreamy procession filling 16 years or so of Lagardere and Aurore time hiding from her father's murderer comes straight out of the prequel. In itself this is absolutely charming throughout, but I would have preferred the Bossu book's Spanish sequence and Lagardere's much more successful situation.The Marais film was restricted I imagine by the standard film length of the time so most of the plot feature had to be omitted and only the major scenes used but it still works very well. The Auteuil film was able to be longer but although enormous fun I think suffers a tiny from the change of personality in Lagardere himself into a hard-up struggling unknown - although I was surprised that this ver of Lagarder was so canny about finance in the hunchback sequence which in itself is interesting and extended and close to the book.Well, nothing wrong I would tell in a several changes in the situation of a very popular storyline that's been filmed so many times, although I being fresh to it and so keen on the ebook would have preferred to see the classic Marais style of film but extended.There's a reason to this mention of the earlier versions. When I discovered the TV series and that it was much longer than either of the movies, I expected the Feval storyline in as much feature as possible, and indeed to a nice extent it is that although again Lagardere is shown as a struggling unknown rather than the book's quite sophisticated young hero. The issues come in part two, when Aurore remains a lively but rather immature young teenager clearly far too young for the adult love that grows between Lagardere and Aurore in the book. After being delighted by part one and adequately satisfied by Lagardere's actor, I became increasingly mystified in part two as Aurore simply didn't grow up and Lagardere clearly became entranced by her mother. I read somewhere that the folks making this ver decided they could be PC and it wasn't acceptable for Lagardere to marry the woman who'd thought he was her father during her childhood. But this is I think nonsense, since in the ebook she learns the truth well before any romance begins between them and they aren't in any method similar except in adversity.Much depends on how that is presented. It's no trouble in the book. It's no trouble in the Marais movie. It only becomes an "issue" in the Auteuil film when Aurore's affection for "her father" turns to adult love the moment she learns he's not her father whereupon she assumes she will be marrying him and asks him to embrace her as a lover, implying that the relationship was perhaps a tiny too close pre her leaning the truth. So perhaps the TV makers were affected more by the Auteuil film which perhaps aroused some questions about incest (?) than by the book's not in the least incestuous approach.I was very upset by the plot change, pairing Lagardere with Aurore's mother but I expect this would work very well for anyone who doesn't mind who he ends up with or hasn't read the book?That said, this is a nice fun TV series and I only docked the stars to 7 because I was so very disappointed myself re the changed ending and Aurore remaining so childish.Later addendum. I've just found the Jean Piat remastered TV ver of this nice story. This is definitely the best. Not a moment in it jars, and as it tells it does hold most closely to the ebook and even contains bits from La Jeuness du Bossu and the alternative Feval Fils ending of the basic storyline followed by a bit of Feval Fils's first sequels. This Piat ver doesn't contain anything about the Mississippi financial fiddle. So I'm glad that was included in the Auteuil version. I guess if I should mix all 4 versions together into one it'd have almost everything.
