I didn't know what to expect when I watched this film, but I was not disappointed. I've always been a fan of Michel Hazanavicius, the author of the bestselling novel, "La Vie de France" (1968). "The Isle of Women" is not a bad film. It is more a "dramatic drama" with a strong sense of historical realism. In the early 1960s, France was in the throes of a political and economic crisis, the effects of which are still being felt today. France was under the threat of an "all-out war" between France and Germany, with the government unwilling to support the French military. Michel Houellebecq's story is one of the darker ones. The French people are not just fighting with their weapons, they are fighting for their way of life. The characters in "The Isle of Women" are much more realistic than most films about the French people. The film is based on a true story. When Jean-Marie Le Gros talks to the president of France (Aldo Lado), the president responds by saying, "I want to know what your kids are doing. I want to know where they are going." The real-life French president, Charles De Gaulle, is in power until 1962, but at that time, his ministers did not believe that France could take on Germany. At the same time, the government was struggling with a government of national unity in response to the military coup d'etat that had taken place. In response, the government passed the Law of Armed Forces on July 15, 1962, which included the stipulation that French troops were to remain in France until a negotiated peace could be reached. The main character, Isabelle, plays a role similar to that of Agnes De Havilland's (Agnes De Havilland in "Les Miserables"). In "The Isle of Women", she is a mother, struggling to support her family and to keep her daughter's education on the up-and-up. The fact that the movie is based on a true story, coupled with the character development of the main characters, makes the movie even more realistic and emotionally affecting. The film, along with "Les Miserables" and "La Vie de France", are among my favorites. A film that requires repeated viewings to fully understand the plot.
