Colonel Chabert


(Le Colonel Chabert)

Director Yves Angelo

Colonel Chabert, a heroic soldier in Napoleon's army, officially declared dead and buried at the battle of Eylau, reappears in Paris ten years later to demand the restitution of his property, his rank and his wife. He had gone off to war as a rich and famous Napoleonic hero and returns, after recovering from horrific head wounds, to a society which has completely changed and has turned against all that Napoleon stood for.
