Editorial Reviews

Thierry (Gérard Sandoz) drops out of school to apprentice as a lion tamer at the zoo when he meets Roselyne (Isabelle Pasco), who shares his passion. They fall in love and when he loses his job, the young lovers journey across France finding odd jobs at several circuses. In Germany, they fall under the tutelage of aging big cat trainer, Klint (Gunter Meisner), and while they are closer to realizing their dreams, they find that their success drives them apart.

Format: DVD
"Roselyne and the Lions" (1989) is directed by Jean-Jacques Beineix (Betty Blue, Moon in the Gutter, Diva). The film is about the romantic relationship of a young couple who seek to live the life of lion tamers. They eventually join a circus in Munich and take over from the trainer. The film was much more interesting than I expected as I felt I was involved in watching an authentic portrayal of the life of lion tamers with all of its thrills and dangers.

This is the director's cut which is the full 176 minutes in length. The information on Amazon is incorrect about the film being only 170 minutes. Also included is a 78 minutes feature about the making of the film.

I am glad I bought it and saw this movie.
This is a cool '80s french movie with a very interesting story premise.
Movies like this won't be made in this day of age any more.
What with all the humane society watch and all the red tape surrounding animals used in a movie.
Highly recommend it.
