De Gaulle behind the mirror - great historical accuracy
26 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

Behind the Great man that De Gaulle was, you have a man, with its own doubts, hopes and disillusion. If you have read De Gaulle's "Memories" or Pompidou "To establish a truth", you will find a great consistency between the movie and the real story.

Besides, alternating real archives footage of De Gaulle with sequences of the film provides an anchor with the historical events that so many films overlook(see for example the stupid film on Pompidou released in 2011 where he is portrayed as an incapacitated & diseased man).

You may be disappointed not to find the classic Hollywood romance and distortion of the real facts to make it "more romantic-like" as Georges Lucas quotes it. But this is neither a movie neither a fiction: it is History.

De Gaulle is also superbly interpreted by Bernard Farcy, whose performance is outstanding and quite surprising as he is far from his traditional repertoire.
