The Return of Martin Guerre (Le Retour de Martin Guerre) is a 1982 French film directed by Daniel Vigne and based on historical events in France during the 16th century.

The film relates a historical case of alleged identity theft. Martin Guerre leaves his young wife in a small French village to go fight in a war, and to travel. Many years later, an older man (played by Depardieu) claiming to be Martin returns to resume his life. The man is initially acknowledged and welcomed by the wife, family, and friends because he seems to know the intimate details of Martin's life. As time passes, the villagers grow suspicious that he is an impostor, and he is put on trial, with his life at stake.

In 1983, a book of the same name was published by Natalie Zemon Davis, an American historian of early modern France and professor at Princeton University. She had served as a consultant and helped write the screenplay for the film.
