The French exchange is one of those openings which is incredibly drawish if both parties are satisfied with half a point. However, if one party (esp Black) decides to go for the kill, then the game can light up with opposite castling and plenty of attacking play. I just played a game which illustrates this point perfectly. =) Hope you enjoy it.
