Synopsis

Florid drama, set in Margaret Mitchell's Old South, involving a strong-willed woman's singleminded resolve to recover the plantation and all its holdings that had been lost to her during her schooling in Paris. Based on a pair of French novels, this saga of murder, revenge (and lots of sex), as well as stunning photography, was filmed on location in Paris and around St. Francisville, Louisiana, as a Franco-Canadian co-production by Philippe de Broca, who ended up marrying (briefly) his leading lady. (de Broca inherited the project from Jacques Demy who in turn had stepped in for Etienne Perier).

It originally had been scheduled as a six-hour miniseries for both French and American television, but was cut down to four hours or less before its Cinemax premiere and even more (slightly more than three hours) for its theatrical release abroad.
