Cinema Clips: Marguerite

Posted By on Thu, Mar 31, 2016 at 12:00 PM


A delightful and funny film starring Catherine Frot as the title character, a rich woman in 1920’s France who likes to sing for her music club.

Problem is, she’s pretty terrible. Her horrible voice is seen as daring by some, and she takes her show on the road to the alternate horror and pleasure of audiences. Some see her as an embarrassment, while others see her as a hero to freedom seeking individuals everywhere.

Director Xavier Giannoli has made a sweet, humorous, beautiful ode to free spirits. It’s early in the film year, but it needs to be remembered months from now as a contender for Best Foreign Film, not to mention consideration in the costume, art direction and cinematography categories.

On top of being funny and enjoyable, it’s a true treat to look at. Frot is an absolute gem in the film, as are Andre Marcon as the critic Georges Dumont and Michel Fau as his anarchist sidekick, Atos Pezzini.
