Soldier of Love / Fanfan la Tulipe
A2 1/2 Sheet (cca. 42 x 59 cm)
Fine, with fold marks and light stains.
Cheerful and decorative poster for the remake of the famous French comedy (original title: Fanfan la Tulipe). The movie features Gina Lollobrigida and Gerard Philipe. The movie tells a lovely romantic story. Fanfan is a young handsome peasant. He joins the army to escape marriage and because a gipsy girl predicted he will get glory and the king's daughter as a wife. But the gipsy girl was in fact Adeline, the daughter of the recruiting officer. Once he has discovered the stratagem, Fanfan refuses to forget this dream and decides to fulfill the destiny of the fake prediction. Fantastic swashbuckling adventures in a 18th century setting, with a light criticism of the war and the mighty. (source: imdb.com)
