La belle histoire / The Beautiful Story (1992) DVD9
Grande aventure et examen à la loupe d'un coup de foudre entre deux individus qui se sont rencontrés et aimés voilà deux mille ans. Seulement, à notre époque, leur amour est resté aussi intact. Deux mille ans de galère pour une seconde d'éternité.

It is a commonplace that past actions affect our present circumstances. This ambitious movie attempts to show how truly distant actions from former lives affect the subsequent lives of the protagonists. In the story, beginning in Roman times, a wanderer (Gerard Lanvin) miraculously tames some wild bees for a group of lepers, who are killed shortly after that by Roman soldiers. In modern times, a group of gypsies enjoy their communal life, full of dancing and merriment, and have a strong affinity for horses. At the same time, a genial female con-artist (Beatrice Dalle) is putting her boyfriend on a plane. When a handsome gypsy (the wanderer in his former life) meets the con-artist (one of the lepers in her former life), it is love at first sight.
