It is 1809 and Captain Neuville (Jean Dujardin) is called to the front, leaving his future bride heartbroken. His sister decides to write letters to her on his behalf, creating a comedy of errors. Dujardin, an Oscar winner with The Artist, is in good form but it is Mélanie Laurent who steals the show with her impeccably timed delivery, at times delightfully dry, at others quite ebullient.
