The Alliance Francaise of Hyderabad, in association with the Hyderabad Film Club and the French Embassy in India, is screening a French film, The True Servant, at the Sarathi Studios in Ameerpet, this Tuesday. The film is directed by Benoit Jacquot, with Isabelle Huppert, Sandrine Kiberlain, Pierre, Arditi, Mathieu Amalric, Alexandre Soulie, among others, playing some of the characters.
An aristocratic young lady disguises herself as a knight with the intention of discovering the true nature of the man she intends to marry. Her disguise fools Lélio, who confides in her that he loves one woman but is betrothed to another, a countess.
If Lélio refuses to marry the countess, he must give her a huge sum of money in compensation. Yet he prefers to marry the other woman, because she is wealthier. If only the countess could fall in love with another man, his problem would be solved. The disguised knight agrees to court the countess – not to release Lélio from his marriage vow, but to expose his true character...
