Arnaud's theatrical skills had the villagers convinced that this was indeed the peasant who had left them eight years previously--all of them except Bertrande de Rols.
Pierre became co nvinced that Arnaud was an imposter, but Bertrande, who was greatly respected in Artigat for her "virtuous and honorable life", insisted that this man was indeed her husband and refused to separate from him.
The case was too confusing to this judge; he decided to declare Arnaud du Tilh guilty of fraud and of abusing Bertrande de Rols, since the accused could appeal to the Parliament of Toulouse.

  Martin Guerre - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the meantime, Pierre Guerre had asked around and believed to have found the true identity of the impostor: Arnaud du Tilh, a man with a poor reputation from the nearby village Sajas (not the Gascon commune of Tilh, 150 km west of Sajas in Dax).
The impostor was convicted and sentenced to death for adultery and fraud; the public sentencing on September 12, 1560, during which the accused maintained his innocence, was attended by the young Montaigne.
The improbability of mistaking a stranger for her husband, her support for him until (and in a way even during) the very trial, and the shared intimate story which was likely prepared in advance are cited as evidence.

 Martin Guerre's Homecoming
Du Tilh’s initial success in pulling off this scheme is due not only to the physical similarities between himself and Martin, but also because he has been preparing for this role for many months, gathering information from the gossip networks of travelers familiar with Artigat and its inhabitants.
Arnaud is helped in addition by the fact that Martin has been away for eight years, and his family does not have any painted portraits of their missing relative by which to easily remember him.
How did du Tilh’s execution affect Sanxi’s relationship with Martin, who by today’s standards would be viewed as a “deadbeat dad?” I also would have appreciated more detail on how du Tilh managed to convince Martin’s family and the villagers of Artigat of his adopted identity.

She goes on to talk about how Jack Sommersby is a heroic figure and Arnaud du Tilh is just a man who assumes another man’s identity.
If we place this in the context of the family, we would see that Arnaud is really trying to take on the identity of the Guerre family not just Martin’s individual personality.
Arnaud’s failure comes when he tries to break some of the family rules and that is a red flag, for Uncle Pierre anyway, that this man may not be who he says he is. “[T]he French family is a source of identity and identification for its members” (Asselin and Mastron 63).

By the time he arrives to claim the role of Martin Guerre, Arnaud du Tilh’s knowledge of the intimate details of Martin’s life, combined with his appearance, acting ability, and Bertrande’s easy acceptance, is enough to convince nearly everyone in the village that the true Martin Guerre has finally returned.
Among those not related to Martin, the village cobbler (who claims that the new Martin’s feet are too small to belong to the original), and relatives and acquaintances of Armand du Tilh support Pierre, while members of some of the most respected local families, such as Jean Loze and Catherine Boeri, support the imposter.

The imposter, Arnaud du Tilh, almost convinced the court he was Guerre when the real Martin Guerre limped into court.
For example, despite the court's declaration that Bertrande was deceived by Arnaud du Tilh (which meant they could exonerate her), Davis contends she was not deceived and offered evidence to support that conclusion.
The most compelling evidence was the fact that du Tilh had extensive knowledge regarding Martin and Bertrande's private life, which he could only have gotten from Bertrande herself.

Montaigne's polemic critique challenges in particular the fatal habit of ascribing supernatural causes to unpropitious yet natural facts and events, which either transgress the pattern of ordinary experience or escape the narrow scope of human knowledge and reasoning and should consequently be left to the judgment of God alone (see 1026/316).

It is also the core argument used by Arnaud du Tilh when Bertrande accuses him of being an impostor in Janet Lewis's historical novel, The Wife of Martin Guerre.
This verdict would have acknowledged the relativity of truth and justice in a way which the "God-given" authority of the French courts in the 16th century could not.
In her efforts to convince Bertrande to drop her legal action, Martin's sister points out that Arnaud du Tilh's criminality is "only the truth for you, not for us", and in so saying expresses a modern ideal of diversity of rights in an environment of social and moral relativity.

As an aside, the type of fecund imagery that is present at the conception of Sanxi is noticeably absent before the birth of the child that Bertrande has with the impostor, Arnaud du Tilh.
In fact, after the birth of her second child, her joy is clouded by her doubts that the man returned to her may not be the man who left her.
The paradox is that only by loving the impostor, Arnaud du Thil, does Bertrande finally see the truth about the real Martin Guerre, whose eyes are "arrogant, grey and cold".

Some statements put into Arnaud's mouth by the filmmakers seem pure invention such as his 'admission' that he had met the real Guerre in the war and gleaned much of his information there.
This seems to be an unjustified fictionalisation and it detracts form the likely possibility that Martin must have gained most of his knowlegde from what NZD cites as an 'open collaboration' with Bertrande.
Compression in film making is inevitable and often unproblematic, for example the sources indicate that Arnaud was not allowed to spend the night with Bertrande for several days but this sequence is completed in one day in the film.
