"[An] epic historical pageant! ...this rambunctious, rollicking affair sends its creator off with full military honours."
– Xan Brooks, The Guardian
"Handsome, generally well acted...and a detailed and smart look at a point in history."
– Oliver Lyttleton, The Playlist
"The grandeur of the production is impressive. Also, it's impossible not to enjoy that bizarre performance from John Malkovich."
– Caitlin Hughes, FilmSchoolRejects

Synopsis

This lavish, star-studded epic set during The Napoleonic Wars of 1810 chronicles a multitude of characters - soldiers and civilians, men, women and children, young and old - as their everyday lives are torn apart by war. Dragged through hills and valleys, between ruined villages, and across charred forests and devastated crops, none can escape the chaos of the times, no matter their station. The idealistic young lieutenant Pedro de Alencar; Clarissa Warren, the malicious little English girl; the shady dealer Penabranca; the vindictive Sergeant Francisco Xavier; and the lusty prostitute Martírio will all follow different paths to the lines of Torres, where the final battle will decide each of their fates.

An interesting foray into the past. An epic story about many people caught up with the flow of refugees from the fighting to Wellington's Lines. Malkovich is great as Wellington. Huppert and Deneuve have their cameo scene. Even the extras deliver a great performance. :) Watch this if you don't mind the 2.5+ hours of film experience!
