|A left-for-dead soldier tries to regain his fiercely disputed identity after a decade-long disappearance in this slow but engrossing adaptation of Balzac's classic Napoleonic-era novel. In his directorial debut, Yves Angelo (the brilliant cinematographer of, among others, Baxter and Un Coeur en Hiver) compensates for an occasionally plodding narrative with some startlingly lavish compositions and a masterful use of sound--particularly during some stunning combat flashbacks. An uneven, often viscerally compelling film bolstered by a haunting opening sequence and the primal charisma of star Gerard Depardieu. In French with English subtitles. For a markedly different, decidedly more romantic look at a similar theme, check out The Return of Martin Guerre (also starring Depardieu) or its Americanized remake, Sommersby. --Andrew Wright|
