The film is leisurely paced, as many French films are, and not much actually happens, but as a character study, it feels true, and ultimately moving.
Depardieu's days as a leading man might be over, but he has a bright future in quirky roles like Germain.
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.
The film isn't about the actor's intelligence. It's about his emotional radiance.
The larger-than-life actor is as emblematic of his country as Tom Hanks is of ours, and My Afternoons With Margueritte is his "Forrest Gump." Only better.
An appealing coming-of-middle-age comedy, My Afternoons With Margueritte exhibits a pleasantly light touch even when dealing with some fairly weighty issues.
If you could also use some time off, try his gentle new comedy.
Charming slice of small-town France.
Germain's bonhomie with the bistro regulars has the feel of a TV comedy pilot, which is more than can be said of the monologues he speaks to his cat, one on the inadequacies of the dictionary.
It is a predictable, undernourished love story. We never quite learn why Margueritte feels so close to Germain or why he bothers with her. Characters appear and disappear, without much difference.
