France, 1809: The charming Captain Neuville (Jean Dujardin, THE ARTIST) is set to marry the naÃ¯ve Pauline (NoÃ©mie Merlant) when the war breaks out, forcing Neuville to depart for the battlefield. After not hearing from the captain for months, Pauline grows sick with worry, and her sister Elizabeth (MÃ©lanie Laurent, INGLORIOUS BASTERDS) decides to write letters on Neuville's behalf to cheer her up.
Unexpectedly, Neuville returns home in glory and is welcomed as a hero, but unbeknownst to everyone, he is a coward and a war deserter. A suspicious Elizabeth is determined to expose the real Neuville, and the two imposters find themselves in a ruthless fight! With RETURN OF THE HERO, director Laurent Tirard (NICHOLAS ON HOLIDAY) delivers a delightful screwball farce with surprising depth.
