MY AFTERNOONS WITH MARGUERITTE
LA TÊTE EN FRICHE
2010, Cohen Media Group, 86 min, France, Dir: Jean Becker

Adapted from Marie Sabin-Rogers’ novel 'La Tête en Friche,' this charming comedy looks at the unlikely bond between the illiterate Germain (Gérard Depardieu) and the 95-year-old woman Margueritte (Gisèle Casadesus), whom he meets on a park bench in a small French town. Germain’s rocky relationship with his aging mother and his lack of education are formidible hurdles, but he has a hunger for knowledge that the cultured and articulate Margueritte is eager to feed. In French with English subtitles. “Quirky, funny and very touching. … Will put a big smile on your face and Depardieu’s the best he’s been in ages.” - Esther McCarthy, Sunday World
