Roguish young peasant Fanfan escapes being wed to a farm girl when a gypsy, Adeline, predicts that he'll find glory in the army, then marry a princess.

In Detail

After enlisting, Fanfan learns that Adeline is the recruiter's daughter and offered a phony prediction to get him to join, but he decides to make the fortune come true anyway. During a sword fight, he rescues the grateful king's daughter, which convinces him that fate is on his side.

Filled to the brim with dazzling stunts and sexual innuendo, ‘Fanfan la Tulipe’, which won the best director prize at Cannes in 1952 and was a smash hit upon its initial release, remains one of France’s all-time best loved films.

Cast includes Gérard Philipe, Gina Lollobrigida, Marcel Herrand
