The movie has several areas where it plays fast and loose with historical events, but broadly speaking it is well-intentioned and wants to focus on Marceau. His story isn't particularly interesting, but it is very 'dramatic', with very familiar 'beats', so I can see why the filmmakers wanted to portray this on screen.
Unfortunately, they chose Eisenberg. His theatrics are weak, his clowning skills are bottom-tier and his delivery (especially when it comes to accent and projection) is so bizarrely off-kilter that he completely dispells any cinematic illusion and deflates every scene. It's a shame, because there is a lot of excellent production here with quality sets, costumes and locations to enjoy. The music is somewhat generic, but fits well. The editing is clear and competent too.
If you can tolerate such an alienating performance, you will probably enjoy this for what it is - a semi-historical tall-tale. But it was too much for me. I spent most of my time daydreaming about who should have been cast instead.
