Time Out says

Truffaut's film follows the course of Adèle Hugo (Adjani), the daughter of Victor Hugo, as she travels from Guernsey to Nova Scotia, and finally to Barbados, in search of a man who clearly doesn't love her. The film is a disaster because, in place of the self-conscious reflection of her predicament conveyed by Adèle's journal (on which the film is based), Truffaut opts for the Hollywood formula of hapless unrequited love. The result is a movie that centres on a woman's weakness, rather than on the strength necessary to put into practice her considered decisions.

Fascinating, true story of Victor Hugo's daughter's obsession with a British officer. Truffaut captures her madness brilliantly.
