Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
In this French historical epic/farce, Colinot (Francis Huster) has had a hard time. First, his fiancee was kidnapped by a group of woman-sellers, and after a very long and dangerous search through 15th-century France, during which he earns the name of "Skirt Puller Upper," he finally finds his intended. Alas, although he has remained chaste (and not without some difficulty), she has not, and she has also married and given her heart to a nobleman. The all-too innocent lad is heartbroken. Fortunately an older woman, Arabelle (Brigitte Bardot), takes pity on him, and teaches him the ways of life and love .
