4 out of 5. Patrice Leconte's RIDICULE takes
this period piece game of wit and words and turns it into something
quite intriguing. From the unforgettable opening shot to the satisfying
conclusion you will delight in the rise
of or poor French lord who rises to tear down the aristocrats. Might I
say too, the woman in the diving bell is a honey...ahem. Anyway, if you
like costume dramas and dig films like Amadeus you might like this.
