Technically, there are two wanderers in The Wanderer. Played by Jean Blaise and Alain Noury, both young men are in search of the women they love. The ladies-Brigitte Fossey and Juliette Villard-disappeared in the confusion following an abruptly called-off wedding. Fossey is rediscovered, but it will take some doing to retrieve Villard. A master blend of equal parts humor, romance and tragedy, The Wanderer was based on the novel by Alain Fournier. The film was originally released in France as Le Grand Meaulnes.
