Having killed a noble too friendly with his wife Charlotte, Nicolas Phillibert flees from France to South Carolina, where he does well and wants to marry a rich man’s daughter. To do so, he will first have to return to France and get a divorce. On landing at Nantes in 1793, the Reign of Terror is raging and he is arrested by the revolutionaries. Taken to a republican ceremony in the cathedral, he saves the life of a royalist girl, Pauline, and escapes with her to an isolated castle. The Married Couple of the Year Two (LES MARIÉS DE L’AN DEUX) was entered into the 1971 Cannes Film Festival. The title is a reference to “The Soldiers of Year II”, the conscripts raised by the Levée en masse in 1793 to defend the republic against foreign invaders.
