In some cases, we may extend our comparison to the novel/story that inspired the original French film. We will cover different genres such as comedy, historical film, drama, etc. our study may include the following films and their counterparts: Trois hommes et un couffin (Three Men and a Baby), Le Retour de Martin Guerre (Sommersby), Les Diaboliques (Diabolique).
