My Afternoons with Margueritte 1.0 stars

My Afternoons with Margueritte movie poster
  • Rated NR | 1 hour, 22 minutes

Gérard Depardieu puts his unwieldy bulk and asymmetrical face to excellent use as a village simpleton who befriends an elderly intellectual woman after the two discover a mutual interest in pigeons. Their subsequent shared adventure into the world of words is a pleasure to look at and an even greater pleasure to listen to, but there’s a falsity at the heart of things. Margeuritte is ultimately about mother-love (or rather, the lack thereof), a tough subject that demands unsentimentality. But who wants to be unsentimental about Mom? 2011.
