The ruthless Count Gonzague (Fabrice Luchini – Molière, Full Moon In Paris) is
in line to inherit a fortune from his dashing cousin the Duc de Nevers (Vincent
Perez – Cyrano de Bergerac, Time Regained) and won’t let anyone stand in his
way, hiring young swordsman Largardère (Auteuil – Jean de Florette, The Lost
Son) to kill the Duke. But the young Largardère switches his allegiance and
leaves Paris with de Nevers who is set to marry the mother of his love child.
Gonzague leads his henchmen into a bloody battle at the wedding where many
lives are lost and Largardère is left holding the baby. Largardère assumes the
disguise of a hunchback to avenge the murder of his friend.
Le Bossu is an action-packed swashbuckler replete with swordfights, treachery,
revenge and murder.
