The film is fictionally based on the life of Wallace leading the Scots in the First War of Scottish Independence against King Edward I of England; the film stars Sophie Marceau, Patrick McGoohan and Catherine McCormack. The story is inspired by Blind Harry's epic poem The Actes and Deidis of the Illustre and Vallyeant Campioun Schir William Wallace and was adapted for the screen by Randall Wallace. Development on the film started at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer when producer Alan Ladd Jr. picked up the project from Wallace, but when MGM was going through new management, Ladd left the studio and took the project with him. Despite declining, Gibson decided to direct the film, as well as star as Wallace; the film was filmed in Ireland with a budget around $65 -- 70 million. Braveheart, produced by Gibson's Icon Productions and The Ladd Company, was distributed by Paramount Pictures in North America and by 20th Century Fox internationally.
Released on May 26, 1995, Braveheart received positive reviews from critics, who praised the performances, production values, battle sequences, musical score. The film grossed $210.4 million worldwide. At the 68th Academy Awards, the film was nominated for ten Academy Awards and won five: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Cinematography, Best Makeup, Best Sound Editing; the film's title is taken from the name of Wallace's famous broadsword, the movie's final shot is of that sword on the field at Bannockburn. In 1286, King Edward "Longshanks" invades and conquers Scotland following the death of Alexander III of Scotland, who left no heir to the throne. Young William Wallace witnesses Longshanks' treachery, survives the deaths of his father and brother, is taken abroad on a pilgrimage throughout Europe by his paternal Uncle Argyle, where he is educated. Years Longshanks grants his noblemen land and privileges in Scotland, including Prima Nocte. Meanwhile, a grown Wallace returns to Scotland and falls in love with his childhood friend Murron MacClannough, the two marry in secret.
Wallace rescues Murron from being raped by English soldiers, but as she fights off their second attempt, Murron is captured and publicly executed. In retribution, Wallace leads his clan to slaughter the English garrison in his hometown and send the occupying garrison at Lanark back to England. Longshanks orders his son Prince Edward to stop Wallace by any means necessary. Wallace rebels against the English, as his legend spreads, hundreds of Scots from the surrounding clans join him. Wallace leads his army to victory at the Battle of Stirling Bridge and destroys the city of York, killing Longshanks' nephew and sending his severed head to the king. Wallace seeks the assistance of Robert the Bruce, the son of nobleman Robert the Elder and a contender for the Scottish crown. Robert is dominated by his father, who wishes to secure the throne for his son by submitting to the English. Worried by the threat of the rebellion, Longshanks sends his son's wife Isabella of France to try to negotiate with Wallace as a distraction for the landing of another invasion force in Scotland.
After meeting him in person, Isabella becomes enamored of Wallace. She warns him of the coming invasion, Wallace implores the Scottish nobility to take immediate action to counter the threat and take back the country, asking Robert the Bruce to lead. Leading the English army himself, Longshanks confronts the Scots at Falkirk. There, noblemen Mornay and Lochlan turn their backs on Wallace after being bribed by the king. Wallace is further betrayed when he discovers Robert the Bruce was fighting alongside Longshanks. Wallace kills Lochlan and Mornay for their betrayal, wages a guerrilla war against the English for the next seven years, assisted by Isabella, with whom he has an affair. Robert sets up a meeting with Wallace in Edinburgh, but Robert's father has conspired with other nobles to capture and hand over Wallace to the English. Learning of his treachery, Robert disowns his father. Isabella exacts revenge on the now terminally ill Longshanks by telling him that his bloodline will be destroyed upon his death as she is now pregnant with Wallace's child.
In London, Wallace is brought before an English magistrate, tried for high treason, condemned to public torture and beheading. Whilst being hanged and quartered, Wallace refuses to submit to the king; as cries for mercy come from the watching crowd moved by the Scotsman's valor, the magistrate offers him one final chance, asking him only to utter the word, "Mercy", be granted a quick death. Wallace instead shouts, "Freedom!", the judge orders his death. Moments before being decapitated, Wallace sees a vision of Murron in the crowd. In 1314, now Scotland's king, leads a Scottish army before a ceremonial line of English troops on the fields of Bannockburn, where he is to formally accept English rule; as he begins to ride toward the English, he stops and invokes Wallace's memory, imploring his men to fight with him as they did with Wallace. Robert leads his army into battle against the stunned English, winning the Scots their freedom. Producer Alan Ladd Jr. had the project at MGM-Pathé Communications when he picked up the script from Wallace.
When MGM was going through new management in 1993, Ladd left the studio and took some of its top properties, including Braveheart. Gibson came

Beau-père is a 1981 French comedy-drama film directed by Bertrand Blier, based on his novel of the same name. It stars Patrick Dewaere, Ariel Besse and Maurice Ronet and is about a 30-year-old pianist who has an affair with his 14-year-old stepdaughter after her mother dies in a car accident; the film had an international release. It received some positive reviews in spite of its controversial subject. Rémi is a struggling pianist with a wife, Martine, a model, getting too old to find desirable work, a 14-year-old stepdaughter, Marion; when Martine is killed in a car crash, Marion expresses her desire to stay with Rémi in their apartment, but is taken away by her father Charly, an alcoholic who dislikes Rémi. Marion comes back, much to her father's disapproval, takes up babysitting to help make ends meet while Rémi gives piano lessons. Soon, Marion tells Rémi she is physically attracted to him, but he resists her advances because of her young age; when Marion proves to be anemic, she is sent to the mountains with her father while Rémi loses his apartment and moves in with friends Simone and Nicolas.
A broken man, he meets with Marion and they have sex in a hotel. She comes back to live with him in a run-down and condemned house, although he first resists any more sex gives in. During a surprise visit, Marion's father at one point sees the two embrace, he asks them when Rémi objects, Charly apologizes and leaves. While babysitting a little girl, Marion finds she has developed the flu and rushes to Rémi for help. Rémi borrows money for the medicine, while seeing the physician, meets Nathalie's mother, Charlotte. Rémi takes interest in Charlotte, a skilled piano player, while Marion seeks out a substitute for him and moves back in with her father. Although in emotional anguish, Rémi visits Charlotte in her apartment, they have sex, unaware Nathalie sees them. Author Rémi Fournier Lanzoni remarked on Blier's filmography taking the position of "a conscientous observer of psychological conflicts". Lanzoni found traces of Blier's "confrontational" style in Beau Pere. Critic Peter Cowie wrote it displayed exploration of "Blier's recurrent theme of a free, guiltless sexuality in which the men are found wanting".
The element of incest in a 14-year-old girl seducing her stepfather raises questions of immorality. Film Professor Sue Harris wrote Beau Pere features Blier's experimentation with fourth wall-breaking monologues from characters, with Rémi giving a lengthy address to the audience in an ironic tone reminiscent of film noir; the monologue offers omniscience, conflicts with narrative. Harris added the way Rémi identifies himself as "le pianist" fits Blier's tendency to identify characters in flat ways, creating expectations from the audience. Writer and director Bertrand Blier declared Beau Pere was intended as "an ode to the fair sex and to womanhood in its purest form". Like Blier's earlier film Going Places, he based it on a novel he had written titled Beau-père; the film was shot in Ville-d'Avray. The bass played by Maurice Risch's character is performed by musician Stéphane Grappelli; the film stars Patrick Dewaere, is one of his last films. He had appeared in Blier's films though never without Gérard Depardieu.
Actress Nathalie Baye described her role as small, but said working with Blier and producer Alain Sarde was educational, Blier managed to both listen to others while having a vision of what he wanted to shoot. Beau Pere stars Ariel Besse in her first film role, she was 15 at the time. Although she is nude in the film, her parents gave approval. Besse secured the role; the film was entered into the Cannes Film Festival in May 1981. It had a total of 1,197,816 admissions in France, with Blier claiming the poster chosen by the distributor was awkward and discouraged the public from seeing the film. Besse's parents sued the distributors and producers over the poster, which shows Besse's breasts, as it was placed on billboards around France without their permission; the judge favoured the producers. Beau Pere was among Blier's least commercially successful films; the film played at the New York Film Festival in October 1981. The film was released in the U. K. as Stepfather and in the U. S. as Beau Pere.
In Canada, the film was banned in the province of Ontario but approved for Quebec and British Columbia, was a controversial case concerning censorship and community standards. The film has received positive reviews. Dave Kehr of the Chicago Reader observes similarities to Lolita and says Beau Pere "has enough of Blier's customary taboo-busting vigor to provide a reasonably unsettling good time". Janet Maslin of The New York Times wrote in 1981 that despite the objectionable subject matter, "Mr. Blier tells this story gently, with as much attention to the humor of the situation as to its eroticism", she stated Besse played the character as an "extremely changeable creature, childish one minute and precocious the next". People called the film convincing and touching, in spite of the topic, not pornographic. Lloyd Paseman, writing for The Register-Guard, compared the film to Blier's earlier Get Out Your Handkerchiefs in its subject matter, but said Beau Pere was better, with Dewaere being "excellent" and Besse being "The main reason to see Beau Pere", comparing her to Brooke Shields.
Conversely, David Denby of New York magazine panned the film as "heavy-handed and sluggish". In his 2002 Movie & Video Guide, Leonard Maltin gives the film three and a half stars and calls
Marquise is a 1997 French dramatic film directed by Véra Belmont, starring Sophie Marceau, Bernard Giraudeau, Lambert Wilson. Written by Jean-François Josselin, Véra Belmont, Marcel Beaulieu, Gérard Mordillat, the film is about a glorious dancer and actress who rises from obscurity to win the hearts of some of France's most prominent citizens, including Moliere and King Louis XIV, she is helped in her career by a rotund comic, who falls in love with her, marries her, brings her to Paris to launch her career. Despite her intimate involvement with other men, she keeps a special place in her heart reserved only for her unlikely spouse. Set in seventeenth century France, the film was shot on location in Lombardy and Emilia-Romagna, from September through December 1996. Marquise was released on 20 August 1997 in France, on 12 September 1997 in the United States; the film received positive reviews, with Variety magazine's Lisa Nesselson calling it "entertaining without being taxing", Paul Fischer on the Urban Cinefile website calling it "masterful entertainment on a grand scale, an intelligent and fascinating insight into 17th century French society".
Marquise was nominated for the AFI Fest Grand Jury Prize, the British Independent Film Award for Best Foreign Independent Film, the César Award for Best Music. While four actresses from Molière's itinerant theatrical troupe set off looking for a latrine, Molière and his best friend Gros-Rene discover Marquise dancing before an eager crowd of men, her movements are heightened by a heavy rain that drenches her hair and clothes. The men offer her coins for her performance. Gros-Rene falls in love with Marquise. While an elderly gentlemen has his way with her, Gros-Rene proposes to her, promising that she will end up on a Paris stage if she accepts, which she does. Although the beautiful Marquise and the balding portly Gros-Rene make an unlikely couple, their relationship is sustained by his unquestioning adoration and her reciprocal affection. While Marquise continues to sleep with other men, her love for her husband is unchanging. Marquise is next attracted to the budding playwright Racine; when Louis XIV bans Molière's Tartuffe, Racine writes a new tragedy Andromaque and Marquise gets her big break.
Marquise's performance in Andromaque brings her acclaim. Written for his beloved in 1667, the tragedy assured Racine's reputation as a playwright; the performances take their toll on Marquise and lead to a tragic end. Marquise was filmed on location in Sabbioneta, Mantua in Lombardy, in Soragna, Parma in Emilia-Romagna, Italy. Principal photography ran from September through the end of December 1996. Marquise was released on 20 August 1997 in France; the film was released in the United States the following month, on 12 September 1997. It was shown at the Venice International Film Festival from 27 August through 6 September 1997, at the Toronto International Film Festival 4–13 September 1997, at a special screening at the Tokyo International Film Festival 1–10 November 1997; the film received positive reviews. In her review for Variety magazine, Lisa Nesselson described the film as being "entertaining without being taxing". Nesselson went on to write: The unpretentious dramedy manages to make viewers feel sophisticated and involved without requiring an advanced degree in French history.
An attractive cast, bawdy subtext, lavish production design and peppy score are among the pleasures in Vera Belmont's energetically helmed pic, which should click nicely locally and offshore.... In her fourth outing behind the camera, who has produced nearly 30 films in as many years, including Quest for Fire and Farinelli, makes the era spring to life. Pic's first half is crammed full of incident and detail as if to say, "See—these were interesting times," and auds will agree. Frivolity gives way to deeper themes—artistic and romantic rivalry, remaining in favor at court, knowing when to be witty, when to be wily and when to weep. Dialogue remains grounded and accessible. Applauding the performances, Nesselson wrote, "Robust and spirited without showing off, Marceau has all the creamy-breasted allure and most of the grace required to turn heads and accrue glory; as her husband, Timsit is touching. And in a far from obvious casting choice, Lhermitte scores as the King." Nesselson praised Jordi Savall's score, calling it"a delight", applauded the "alacrity" of the cinematography and editing, which convey the "mud and rabble as well as the sumptuous pomp of the day."In her review for Urban Cinefile, Lousie Keller described the film as "a colourful period piece that captures the lusty spirit of the 17th century with its fire and passion."
Keller praised the entire "top notch" cast for their performances: Sophie Marceau is dazzling as the alluring Marquise: she captivates at every turn with her coquettish style and delicate beauty. Disarmingly casual about her morals, yet virtuous in spirit, Marquise is the epitome of the femme fatale: a goddess of feminine wiles, a bewitching enchantress. Patrick Timsit is poignant as her loyal and faithful husband, he is the theatre troope’s buffoon - the true sad clown. Keller praised the "excellent" production design, the "beguiling" cinematography, the director, Vera Belmont, who "invests passion and energy in this entertaining romp which delicately balances comedy and tragedy on the fickle seesaw of life."
