"Unfortunately this is not a good movie. Crucial events of one of my favorite books are not found in the movie. With giant steps the director walks through the story, Alain Fournier's popular Le Grand Meaulnes. Camerawork is ok. Acting not bad. It's nice to see France in 1910. But director Verhaeghe should take the time to tell the story of Augustin Meaulnes, his strange adventure, mystery of the lost castle, the story of the gypsy and so on."
So Good, but So Disappointing!

"This is a film I have yearned to see again since I saw it in a cinema in the late 60's under the title "The Wanderer", so my dream has come true and for that I would give it six out of five!
BUT, the disappointment which kills it is why no subtitles? The cinema version had subtitles which I recall were of acceptable quality. You can usually turn them on or off on most DVD's so what's the problem?"
