The Seattle International Film festival has saved us from a droll and
boring summer movie season. With sequels galore and some atrocious
originals, it was nice to catch a screening of the closing night film
at the festival last night: Molière. The film wins big, and hopefully
will be nominated for best French film, director and actor (Romain
Duris) when the Césars roll around next spring.
Molière is France's Shakespeare and his life and plays might not be
familiar to most Americans. So French director Laurent Tirard decided
three years ago to make a film that would bring the work and escapades
of the famed writer more accessible to audiences. Tirard co-wrote the
screenplay and assembled a top notch cast including Romain Duris (The
Beat That My Heart Skipped), Fabrice Luchini (Intimate Strangers),
Laura Morante (Avenue Montaigne) Edouard Baer (The Story of My Life),
and the always wonderful Ludivine Sagnier (Swimming Pool).
The story begins with Jean-Baptists Poquelin aka Molière (Duris)
frantically trying to decide if he is to do a tragedy for his next play
in front of the esteemed royal family despite the fact they desperately
want a comedy. The film flashes back thirteen years earlier to when
Poquelin has been thrown into jail because he could not pay a debt.
While in jail, Monsieur Jourdain (Luchini) seeks out Molière's
theatrical talents. Molière is whisked away to the Jourdain estate in
disguise where he must help Jourdain win the esteem of a desired
mistress (Sagnier) while keeping this all hidden from the eyes of Mme.
Jourdain (Morante). In exchange for his services Molière's debt will be
paid and forgiven. Bits and pieces of the rest of story seem familiar
to anyone who's read Molière's plays, as this film sets the stage that
these events inspire Molière to be the comedy writer that he became.
The film wins on many levels. The acting talent of Duris alone merits a
viewing as well as the beautiful cinematography by Gilles Henry. The
images were very colorful and beautifully framed. The magnificent
locations that only France has to offer were wonderfully highlighted as
well as extravagant costume design, hair and make up. The score written
by Frédéric Talgorn was by far one of the best parts. His ability to
weave fifteenth century musical themes into a robust, fun and energetic
comedy score definitely is worth a second listening at home on a nice
speaker system. Oh yeah, the film is also actually funny! There are
some great scenes from the plays as well as some nice jokes toward a
Molière has everything. It is a fantastically crafted and brilliant
look at one of France's most famous artists. The film may run a bit
long for some, but it's hardly noticeable when juxtaposed with the
brilliants visuals, fantastic acting and wonderful music and sound
design. The film also has heart and leaves us with a nice message to
ponder when leaving the theater. When Molière releases in your area,
don't miss it. The film is also appropriate for teenagers as the sexual
content is rather minor. French teachers around America rejoice at a
PG-13 French film they can show to their classes! Don't wait for DVD
though; see this one on a big screen.
