Product Description

Academy Award-nominee Gerard Depardieu stars in this heart-warming, feel-good story as Germain, a barely literate middle-aged man who faces constant ridicule from those around him. But his life takes a turn for the better when he meets Margueritte, an elderly woman with a passion for reading who introduces him to the beautiful world of French literature. With Margueritte's warmth and guidance, Germain develops the maturity and confidence necessary to take control of his destiny, and live the life he's always wanted.

Review

One of (Gerard Depardieu's) best performances. -- Brendan Kelly, Montreal Gazette

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely! Oct. 2 2011
Format:DVD
I just loved this movie. It's all about the small things of life and how friendship can sneak in even when you aren't expecting it. Highly recommended. I have been looking for this movie for over a year and finally found a copy on Canada Amazon.

4.0 out of 5 stars A sweet film in the best sense March 3 2012
By K. Gordon TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
A sweet trifle of a film, taken to a deeper and richer level by two outstanding performances.

Gerard Depardieu, in what must be his 6,000th film still feels fresh and alive as the overweight,
under educated and well meaning laborer who can hardly read, and who strikes up a chance
friendship with the 94 year old Margueritte, played with amazing delicacy and life force by the
wonderful Gisele Casadesus, who was an astounding 95 herself when this was made. Oh that
we all should live so long with such grace.

Marguritte begins reading to the quasi-literate Germain, who finds his interest in reading sparked,
and with it an expanded sense of self. He even finds himself falling in love (in a chaste almost
childlike way) with the still beautiful Margueritte.

Simplistic, sure, sentimental, undoubtedly. But much like Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman in
`Driving Miss Daisy' these two actors give performances that make you want to forgive anything
that might otherwise feel trite or too on the nose (e.g. the very literal flashbacks to Germain's childhood).

Not quite a great film, but a charming, sweet, life-affirming and very human one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and feel-good Aug. 25 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I took a chance purchasing this movie judging only by the trailer, as this movie has not come out in theatres in Canada yet to my knowledge.

I am happy to say that I enjoyed it very much.

"My afternoons with Marguerrite" is a delightful movie that I recommend to anyone who likes happy endings.

One thing that mislead me was that the movie had a fair amount of profanity which was not listed on the box!

5.0 out of 5 stars Depardieu est égal à lui-même Nov. 25 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
L'histoire est très agréable quoiqu'un peu bonbon au sucre, mais les acteurs la rendent prenante et attendrissante. Ce n'est pas un grand film de par son histoire mais certainement une étoile de plus au CV des acteurs.
