My Afternoons With Margueritte
MY AFTERNOONS WITH MARGUERITTE is the story of one of those improbable encounters that can change the course of one's life: the encounter, in a small public garden, between Germain (GERARD DEPARDIEU, in his best performance in years), fifty and barely literate, and Margueritte (the delightful GISELE CASADESUS), a little old lady passionate about reading. Forty years and 220 pounds separate them but one day, purely by chance, Germain sits down beside Margueritte. She'll go on to read aloud extracts from novels and thereby allow him to discover the magic of books, a world from which Germain imagined he was excluded for life.
