Chouans!

Chouans! is a French film directed by Philippe de Broca , released in 1988 .

Synopsis

The story of a noble and enlightened family, that of the Count Savinien de Kerfadec ( Philippe Noiret ), during the great Chouan revolts in the Vendée and Breton countryside. The story of his three children, torn between the revolutionary spirit and the epic resistance of the whites against the rise of the Republic. On the one hand, there is Tarquin ( Lambert Wilson ), a fierce republican whom Kerfadec collected at the age of ten, on the other, Aurèle ( Stéphane Freiss ), legitimate son of the Count whose defense of the monarchy became the battle horse. Finding a pretext during these revolts, they will tear in truth for the love of the beautiful Céline ( Sophie Marceau), a young woman collected in the cradle by Kerfadec and brought up at the same time as them.
