"follows the adventures of Charette (played here by French star Hugo Becker), naval officer, winner of the American War of Independence, who sees his life changed in 1793 when he engages in a final fight for freedom. François Athanase de Charette de la Contrie (2 May 1763 – 29 March 1796) was a Breton Royalist soldier and politician. He served in the French Royal Navy during the American Revolutionary War and was one of the leaders of the Revolt in the Vendée against the revolutionary regime during which the peasant fighters asked Charette to be their leader. During the very brutal war in which republicans massacred many people, he won numerous battles but was captured and executed when he was just 32."

Looks good. I hope they distribute a subtitled version here.

Seems like a good historical movie. But I don't like it when the good guy gets captured and executed. Guillotined?

When he won the American War of Independence, did he have any help?

@Legionarius "Guillotined?"

Quite a spectacle but you might want to fast forward. (spoilers)

I love that he is authentically hatless with his underwear (i.e. his shirt) showing, like everyone in 1793.

Le spectacle au Puy de Fou est vraiment genial. Les acteurs et la mis en scene sont magnifiques!

Good post. As with Revolutionary and Napoleonic themed books, the more treats the better.

The 'good guy'??? Nah, that's a matter of opinion. In my mind he wasn't the good good guy and got exactly what he deserved, the dirty royalist rebel. LOL

Looking forward to seeing it.

My dear fellow, one cannot be a Woyalist and a webel.

Thanks my good friend…

The Royalists were rebelling against the Revolutionary government, so, in this case they were the rebels. And as they say, one man's rebel is another man's…etc, etc
