DIRECTOR: Philippe Le Guay - FRANCE

Popular television celebrity Gauthier Valence (Lambert Wilson) embarks on a train journey to Brittany’s Île de Ré with a clear mission in mind: convince his old friend Serge Tanneur (Fabrice Luchini) to return to the stage in the lead of Molière’s The Misanthrope. The task is not that simple, as Tanneur, a once-renowned comedian, went into exile three years prior, living in a dilapidated house bequeathed to him by his uncle. He is sick of his vocation, burning every script that he receives. For good and bad, a five-day struggle ensues to bring the great man out of the shadows. “Le Guay brings us another delicious, smart, and cruel comedy about the pleasures of playing with words. Ego, pride, and vanity guide this tender face-to-face, with the Brittany setting and its appealing inhabitants adding to the universality.”—Time Out. (104 mins.)

Filmography: L’année Juliette (95), Trois huit (01), The Cost of Living (03), Du jour au lendemain (06), The Women on the 6th Floor (10).
