Fanfan La Tulipe Film Poster


Classic French swashbuckling romantic comedy in which Fanfan La Tulipe (Gerard Philipe), a handsome and highly skilled swordsman and womaniser in the reign of King Louis XV, escapes at the last minute from a forced marriage to his latest conquest, a peasant girl. On the way to the wedding a fake fortune teller assures him that he will marry a princess, and Fanfan immediately decides to run away and enlist in the King's army to ensure he meets the princess that he is destined to marry. After he has signed his military contract, he finds out that the 'fortune teller' was none other than Adeline (Gina Lollobrigida), the daughter of the recruiting officer - but Fanfan is by now deeply attached to his romantic dream, and continues to pursue it regardless.
