Normandy, 1819. Jeanne is a young woman full of childish dreams and innocence when she returns home after finishing her schooling in a convent.

    A good film

    Is the story of an aristocratic 19th century French family of any
    interest today? I believe that it depends. Personally I think it is, as
    long as it touches some humanitarian aspects and allows the spectator
    to draw parallels to his present day aspirations. This film does that.
    It is not a masterpiece, but it is well focused and nicely narrated. To
    me the De Maupassant novel was just an excuse and, to be honest, I
    found the lyrical passages presented as commentaries to be the film’s
    weakest points. The extensive use of close-ups was a great idea and
    added a special quality to the film. This does not mean that the wide
    shots were not good. The emphasis on the faces of the heroes was a very
    correct approach. The acting was very good and the unraveling of the
    story almost without flash backs was very helpful in understanding the
    changes in the family’s fortunes. At the end of the day, I believe,
    that this was the point the film was trying to make. The ups and downs
    and it was very nicely depicted in the last sentence which closed the
    movie. It was really the summary of the adventures we watched.
