Halifax, 1863. A young woman, Miss Lewly, comes to Halifax to search for Lt Pinson, with whom she is madly in love. Actually, she is Adèle Hugo, the second daughter of the great French literary figure and statesman. The Lt Pinson does not answer to her love and makes her understand it is hopeless. But as her obsession grows she keeps chasing and harassing him. This film about passionate yet obsessive love and self-destruction is based upon the real diary of Adèle Hugo.

IMDB - 1 wins

Don't read ANY comments if you haven't seen it yet.

OH God, François Truffaut summarized so perfectly the stages of … well, "non corresponded love". It's obsessive, but above all is the love of a lost, fragile woman.

Rejection told step by step in its consequences, brilliantly.

And then there's Isabelle Adjani. WOW. WHAT A PERFORMANCE! She REALLY incorporates a psychologically instable Adele and deserved the recognition she got (NYFCCA, NBR, NSFCA and was robbed of a much deserving Oscar, but who can beat the "hurricane" One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest?)

See IT and feel IT. Remember that it is based on a true story: you won't forget Adele H., her complexity and her nobility soon.
