Nice small one with little faults and some sort of hidden meaning !

It's nice movie for sure, about the liberation of someone's real talent who is so sincere, devoted and sensitive. But I have some notes..

Firstly the personality of (André) himself. He seemed that shy man who is pure as a good child but sometimes he seemed as that hopeless retarded ! Specially when he thought that he killed the actor and put him easily in the trash box ! to push him (again) in the hole at the play's first night ! So he killed the poor man twice and hided it twice too !? That's not my deeds as a shy person myself !! Moreover the weird end with (Andrei) riding the white horse like his faith in himself, and the belief of the audience, made him such a true knight who is running in shining confidence ! In fact from where our good old (André) learned to ride, and in that kind of ability ??! So How on earth that arrogant star could forgive him in a quick simple way (the star even waved him goodbye ?! ) from where he had such great sportsmanship ?! And with whom ? The man who killed him twice ?? I thought that when he a star like him sees the smash success of the foolish prompter he had to be calm or a little humble, or maybe if he did something wrong and (André) is the only person who knew about, or ANYTHING can make me believe that fabricated kind of fanciful ending with the star is leaving peacefully and the ex–stumbling prompter walking around the farms like he came back to his reality as a knight from the middle ages !

Another bothersome thing : there is something wrong with the personality of the arrogant star, and what he faced. He complained about an armor that hurts indeed, he had huge amount of gas in his belly ! he tried to make one slight pass at the writer's wife and insulted the main character, then he had been hit badly and put in the trash zone to had such humiliating journey in underground tunnel for more than a day and night ! Mainly I didn't feel him as an evil person who deserves that torturing events he suffered (for instance he saw the wife in the bathroom by coincidence not in intentional way for god's sake, and he cut her monologue instated of training her because simply there were 4 days on the opening !), besides how these events wouldn't be the thing which could change him into that thankful kind person !? UNLESS the movie tried to make us see him as a very coward man; therefore he didn't want to tell the wife about cutting her monologue out of the play as he himself suggested, and maybe that's the explanation why he didn't say anything at the end about the loss of his cloth, cell phone, role, money and his dignity !

However the script was so good at finding that intelligent atmosphere to express its wonderful meaning especially when we watch such a conversion of an abashed person at the theater business and as a live performer in a difficult long role too, so also the believing of the naive audience for the liar swindler star whom lived on laying as a job ! (the writer and the wife both of them believed the star in almost every thing !). But the movie told us in its nice way another thing; that the pure person is the only one who could function the most as a liar ! Because we discovered that the writer was weak so he had been cheated by the lying star too many times !, his wife approved about whatever the star says or does !, and the two couldn't lie well on (André) so he discovered them before the play's beginning, hence the only great lair from the start was (André) ! .. He didn't say the truth about hitting and hiding the star, he wrote a fake message to make the actor's disappearing right and perfect, nobody till the very end knew anything about the actual truth of that, and he was such a talented liar as an actor on the stage who saved the day and got all the success for those bunch of miserable amateurs !! Hmmm, the successful liar is basically a real pure sincere man ? Is it some sort of hidden meaning behind this small movie ?!
