I got this film in anticipation of an epic on the battle for Quebec. It was not. All you see for the supposed battle is some Howitzers going off for four minutes and that's it. The rest is the story of the politics of the time wrapped around a lengthy love story. Despite its excellent photography,costumes and acting I was so reliefed when it finished and I could go to bed.
