Two Newly Restored Films by Philippe de Broca (Blu-ray)

Review Philippe de Broca Double Feature: On Guard, Five Day Lover. On Guard: It takes the cavalier Lagardère sixteen years to avenge his friend the Duke of Nevers, who was assassinated by the infamous Gonzag, who would later become the king of Paris finance in the sumptuous days of the Regency. Sixteen years to assert the triumph of morality, save honor ... and find love. Five Day Lover: Claire, married to Georges, has an affair with bachelor Antoine, who is being kept by her good friend Madeleine, a wealthy couturière. But the meetings at Antoine's apartment, five afternoons a week, come to a halt when their partners learn the truth.
