Plot Sypnosis:

“Love is my religion,” the young woman wrote in her diary. The god of that religion was a British lieutenant in Nova Scotia, 1863—a soldier who wanted nothing to do with the woman who adored him. Cinema icon François Truffaut (The Bride Wore Black, Mississippi Mermaid) directs the stunning Isabelle Adjani (Possession, Camille Claudel) in the staggeringly powerful The Story of Adèle H. (L’histoire d’Adèle H.). The “H” stands for Hugo and, like her famed father Victor Hugo, Adèle had a gift for writing. However, she wrote in code, creating a secret diary. Only in modern times was the diary deciphered, revealing the true-life story of Adèle’s obsessive quest to make the soldier love her. Impeccably photographed by Néstor Almendros (The Wild Child, Days of Heaven), this “musical, lilting film with a tidal pull to it” (Pauline Kael) earned Adjani numerous Best Actress honors, including an Academy Award nomination, and features Bruce Robinson (director of Withnail & I) as the obscure object of Adèle’s desire.
