France 1809: the handsome philanderer Captain Neuville is called to the front, leaving his future bride Pauline heartbroken. When Pauline doesn't hear from Neuville for months, her health begins to fail. Her sister Elizabeth hatches a plan to write fake letters to Pauline from Neuville. Three years later the reappearance of the missing soldier causes chaos as he sets out to exploit the fictitious war hero status Elizabeth has created for him!

Starring Academy Award winner Jean Dujardin (The Artist) and award winner Mélanie Laurent (Inglorious Basterds), the latest period comedy from director Laurent Tirard (Molière), is a charming, playful delight!

Return of the Hero delivers a handsome package” – Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter

There are shades of Pride and Prejudice in the latest film from writer-director Laurent Tirard, not least in the naming of its heroine, and the film is a delight from start to finish.” - Nick Dent, Time Out Australia
