I RECENTLY saw mention on France 3 Perigords television of a film about a peasant revolt in the Dordgone produced in the region.
The film, Jacquou le Croquant, is set in the early 19th Century and tells the story of a young man who turns against the ruling classes.
I've only been able to see the trailers on the official site but Patrick writes on his Brain Police website a glowing review of the film.
Patrick says he enjoyed spotting corners of the Dordogne where the film was shot, but he also said the "art direction, costuming, camera work, design and sets are absolutely stunning".
Author Eugene Le Roy wrote a book based on the events in the late 1800s and thanks to the wonders of the internet I've been able to track down an online version of the title.
Jacquou le Croquant is available through Ebooks Gratuits, just do a search on the author's name and whilst you are there you are sure to discover a variety of French classics.
And if you have seen the film please feel free to leave a mini-review in the comments below.
