Plot Summary
In a film based on Marie-Sabine Roger's book, Margueritte (Gisèle Casadesus) is a 95-year-old woman whose greatest joy in life is a good book. So the residents of her rural French village are stunned when she strikes up a conversation with the sweet German oaf Germain (Gérard Depardieu), who is virtually illiterate. But, as their odd friendship blossoms, Margueritte shares her passion with Germain, teaching him as she reads aloud. And when her eyes begin to fail, Germain returns the favor.

  • An appealing coming-of-middle-age comedy, My Afternoons With Margueritte exhibits a pleasantly light touch even when dealing with some fairly weighty issues. show more

  • Depardieu's days as a leading man might be over, but he has a bright future in quirky roles like Germain. show more

  • Casadesus infuses Margueritte with a lilting quality, underscored by the sadness of someone who knows she is the last person standing and inhabits an alien world. show more

    Great feelings brought out by this gem of a film... Depardieux and all the others in the cast do a fantastic job - thoroughly French....A must see if you have feelings.
