Battle of the Brave
Gerard Depardieu, Vincent Perez, and Jason Isaacs star in director Jean Beaudin's historical account of the battle waged between England and France in hopes of gaining a geopolitical foothold in Canada. When a fur-trapper (David La Haye) and a young widow (Noemie Godin-Vigneau) find themselves inexorably immersed a violent clash of nations, the heartbreak that follows will prove an intimate glimpse into the horrifying effects of war on all of humanity. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"History is long, life is short. It's certainly too short for the sort of overblown, melodramatic, pseudo-epic filmmaking Quebec's Jean Beaudin tried to foist on Francophone audiences two years ago."
‑ John Terauds, Toronto Star
"While the love story is nothing special, Battle of the Brave is worth one look for people who enjoy the period."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson, Buzzine Magazine
"Feels like a French Romantic novel shot without a trace of irony."
‑ David Gilmour, Globe and Mail
"you'll be dying for Celine Dion's inevitable closing number to take you away from it all. God, never thought I'd say that."
‑ Christopher Null,
"Fans the flames of passion, undoused by time or clunky exposition."
‑ Lisa Nesselson, Variety
"The Passion of the Witch"
‑ S. James Wegg, JWR
