Olivier Martinez (Unfaithful,
The Chambermaid) plays Angelo, an exceptionally gallant, Italian
soldier-in-exile hiding out from his Austrian enemies in rural France, where a
cholera epidemic is sweeping the countryside. Helped in a tough spot by a
countess (Juliette Binoche), Angelo swears his unyielding protection to her as
she searches for her missing husband. The nobler virtues hold sway as Martinez
suppresses his own deepening love and desire for the lady, an admirable posture
that has ironic consequences when the countess herself becomes deathly ill.
Jean-Paul Rappeneau, directs this adventure-romance to a nice pitch of vitality and high drama.
Based on the novel by Jean Giono.
