One day, a young lady asks him to follow her to the deathbed of her mother... Thirteen years earlier, Molière already runs a troupe but goes broke and is thrown to prison. Fortunately (?) his debt is covered by Monsieur Jourdain, a rich man who wants him to help him rehearse a one-act play he has written with a view to seducing a beautiful bright young widow, Célimène.

My god, what a pleasure to see a movie which doesn't pretend to appeal to children. Such a movie is rare these days in the Anglo Saxon world. Thank god for the French who do not need to worry about income because of the government subventions. Moliere is written to the French knowing adult, which understands the intricacies of that French period, full of gaps between the poor, the rich and the aristocrats. Moliere, the writer, fully understood those gaps, and included them in his splendid masterpieces.This movie, actually, is an interpretation on the inspiration of Moliere for writing one of his plays. I especially enjoyed the way Moliere was presented as a tragedy lover and a comedy hater. Very ironic.
